Abstract:

The study was undertaken on clinical cases of bovine mastitis presented to Teaching Veterinary Clinical Complex (TVCC), F.V.Sc & A.H, SKUAST-K and adjoining areas during the course of study August 2014-May 2016. For prophylactic trials, Twenty recently parturated lactating animals maintained at Mountain Livestock Research Institute (MLRI), SKUAST-K, Manasbal under similar managemental conditions but having susceptibility to occurrence of mastitis (as evidenced by precedence to occurrence of mastitis in previous lactations) were studied. Animals were divided into two groups, Group I comprising of ten animals received self-formulated anti-oxidant trace mineral mixture for a period of thirty days while as the other group (Group II) did not receive any anti-oxidants. The feeding of anti-oxidant trace mineral formulation improves the udder health status indicating increased capability of udder to defend against the attack of pathogenic microorganisms responsible for causing mastitis and hence decreased susceptibility to the occurrence of mastitis. Anti-oxidant trace mineral supplementation like Cu, Zn, Mn and Se may play a significant role in prophylaxis of mastitis in lactating animals.
