Objective

Quantify costs of mastitis in Canada and evaluate the economic impact of mastitis control practices

 

Results

The cost of mastitis in a herd represent $660 per cow

  • Half of these costs are associated with subclinical mastitis :
    –       72 % are losses incured due to drop of milk production in affected cows 
    –       25 % associated with increased culling risk
  • A third of these costs are associated with clinical mastitis :
  • –       34 % caused by reduced milk production
    –       48 % associated with increased culling and mortality risk
  • –       The average cost of clinical mastitis is $744
