Sub clinical mastitis is a hidden form of mastitis, causes a huge economical loss to the farmers. So, present study was done with the aim to find out such management practice to detect and control sub-clinical mastitis in the dairy cattle under field condition that can easily be adopted by the farmers. Eighty cattle having sub clinical mastitis were selected by Surf Field Mastitis Test (SFMT) and divided into two groups i.e., control (N=40) and treatment (N=40). Tri sodium citrate @ 30 mg/kg body wt. was supplemented to the cows orally till 10 days in the treatment group. Milk sample was collected at 0 and after 10 day of the experimental period and analysed for somatic cell count (SCC), milk pH, electrical conductivity (EC), milk yield (kg), fat, SNF, protein and lactose %. It was found that recovered rate from SCM, milk yield, fat, SNF, protein and lactose were high and SFMT score, milk SCC, pH and EC were low in the treatment group of the cows. Hence, detection of SCM through SFMT and control by use of tri-sodium citrate is an effective, easy and cost-effective management practices which will support the farmers in raising their income through increase in milk quality and quantity.
