Abstract:

The present study was conducted to assess the prevalence of subclinical mastitis in Kangayam cows. The study was conducted in three districts of Tamil Nadu at farmer’s field. For diagnosis of subclinical mastitis (SCM) in Kangayam animals California Mastitis Test (CMT) was done. An incidence of 43% of SCM was recorded in Kanagaym animals out of 100 animals studied. The quarter wise prevalence showed an incidence of 20.50%. Study on the individual quarters indicated 23.17, 29.16, 20.73 and 26.82% incidence in right fore, right hind, left fore and left hind quarters, respectively. The incidence of SCM is more in adult animals (52.54%) than young animals (29.27%). The incidence was higher (56.67%) in 7 and above lactation than 4-6th lactation (45.45%) and 1-3rd lactation (29.73%). The mid lactation stage (50.00%) cows were affected more followed by early lactation (40.81%) and late lactation (36.81%) stages.
