Machine milking is a common practice from past decades in many organised dairy farms in most of milk producing country.  The production of good quality and hygienic milk are essential to assess the impact of manual and machine milking method on udder health. California mastitis test (CMT) and Somatic cell count (SCC) widely used to predict the mammary health status of quarters (cows) and for the suitability of milk for human consumption. The objective of this study was to investigate the relationship of milk somatic cell counts, and mastitis causing Staphylococcus aureus with regard to the milking practices followed in organized farms.
