Mastitis Trial – Effects of Teat Spraying and DCT


There have been many studies looking at the effects of teat spraying (TS) and dry cow therapy (DCT) as single treatments.

This 2011 trial was unique in the way it measured how a combination of teat-spraying and whole herd DCT affect clinical mastitis and production in a pasture-based herd.

TS lowered the number of mastitis infections but there was no effect on production of either TS or DCT over the two seasons.
