Mastitis is a disease that affects a large number of dairy animals throughout the world. In most countries surveys of the incidence of mastitis, irrespective of cause show comparable figure as about of 40% morbidity rate amongst dairy cows and a quarter infection rates as measured by an indirect test of about 25%. Mastitis is caused by several species of common bacteria, fungi, mycoplasmas and algae. Most mastitis is of bacterial origin, with just a few of species of bacteria accounting for most cases. Mastitis causes considerable changes in milk and milk protein. Annual losses in the dairy industry due to mastitis was almost 2.37 thousand crore rupees in India. Out of this, sub-clinical mastitis accounted for approximately 70% of the loss. Many different control measures of bovine mastitis include hygienic management procedures, antibiotic treatments, teat dipping sealants, and intramammary devises. The use of animals that are resistant to mastitis reduces the need to apply drugs, with consequent decrease in the levels of contamination of products and the environment.
