Abstract:

The study was conducted to determine the prevalence of subclinical mastitis in cows in and around the Nagpur region on the basis of Modified California Mastitis Test (MCMT). A total 601 milk samples from 151 cows were screened by Modified California Mastitis Test for identification of subclinical mastitis. Out of 601 milk samples, about 200 milk samples were positive for subclinical mastitis while 390 milk samples observed to normal. About 83 milk samples were observed as ‘+’, 69 samples as ‘++’ and 48 samples as ‘+++’ out of 200 subclinically affected milk samples. The overall animal wise and quarter wise prevalence of subclinical mastitis on the basis of CMT was 70.19% and 34.94%, respectively. The quarter wise 34.94% milk samples were found positive for subclinical mastitis while 65.06% milk samples were found negative. From all samples 13.81%, 11.48% and 7.99% milk samples were observed for ‘+’, ‘++’ and ‘+++’, respectively.
