NMC webinar focuses on mastitis diagnostics

June 24 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Join us for an NMC webinar presented by Dr. Justine Britten

This one-hour educational offering begins at 2 p.m. Central time on June 24, 2021

Title: From Dairy Lab to Veterinary Lab: The Do’s and Don’ts of Mastitis Diagnostics

Description: Microbiological culture has been the gold standard of mastitis diagnostics for many years. However, in recent years, the dairy industry is seeing increasing popularity of using molecular methods, as well as doing mastitis cultures right on the farm. Not all methods are appropriate for a particular situation. Thus, it is important to determine what question is being asked, what environment the procedures will be performed in, and who will be doing that work. The primary goal for most dairy producers using a milk quality laboratory service is to create data-driven management decisions. Incorrect data can potentially be worse than no data at all and may result in healthy animals being mistakenly culled. Or, an undetected disease may escalate into a disease outbreak.


During the webinar, these topics will be covered:

  • Primary differences between most on-farm labs and a commercial milk quality lab
  • Complexity levels of diagnosing mastitis pathogens
  • Advantages and disadvantages of culture-based methods versus molecular methods
  • Interpretation of results and use in management decisions
