Small ruminant dairies experience mastitis at a much higher rate than most producers appreciate. Intramammary infections are frequently subclinical and overlooked as such. In order to develop an effective treatment program we must first define the problem on farm, then we can create strategies for improving udder health and milk quality. This talk will cover mastitis detection methods along with various treatment programs aimed at sheep and goat udder health in backyard or commercial herd settings.
