Significant Impact Group(s): Pathogen management \ Managing sick animals \ Targeted use of antibiotics ; AMU reduction strategies
Species targeted: Dairy;
Outcome Parameter(s): Udder health
Summary: Bad udder health management threatens human health due to zoonotic or antimicrobial resistant pathogens adapting to different environments. Mastitis prevention is essential in an effective and sustainable dairy production system. High quality milk with low SCC is crucial for product quality for the processing industry (cheese making). This will result in a reduction of food loss and food waste by producers, processors and consumers. Mastitis is one of the most frequent and important diseases in bovine milk production with high antimicrobial usage and a source of creating a potential acceleration on the emergence of antimicrobial resistance. The presented results will discuss data collected at country level on mastitis therapy and examine strategies to improve udder health for a sustainable dairy production.
