Dairy industry meet to discuss how to prevent mastitis in dairy cows
Organised by IDF and hosted by SEGES, the conference provides an opportunity for those involved in the field to share innovation and research on mastitis management, with the aim of achieving a reduction in mastitis in dairy cattle and ultimately improving animal care, welfare and milk production.
Caroline Emond, IDF Director General, said:
"Healthy and productive dairy animals are vital to the provision of a safe, sufficient and nutritious food supply at a time of a rapidly increasing global population. Mastitis causes decreased productivity as well as food loss, due to discarded milk. Coordinated action is essential if the dairy sector is to achieve optimal management of this disorder, which is so important to maintaining and increasing sustainable milk production globally."
