The subclinical mastitis is a more serious concern and is responsible for much greater losses to the dairy industry in India. The prevalence of subclinical mastitis (SCM) was recorded (56.25 %) in cross breed cow, with higher involvement (33.17 %) of right hindquarters. The prevalence was also found highest (19.04 %) in third parity and early stage (41.26%) of lactation. Microbiological examination of milk sample revealed highest involvement of Staphylococcus spp. (66.90%), followed by Streptococcus spp. (23.23%), E. Coli (02.81%) and mixed infection (07.04%). Enrofloxacin was found to be the most effective antibiotic against SCM. For early detection of subclinical mastitis, CMT can be performed regularly as a control measure and emphasis should be given on farm management practices, particularly on milking procedure and udder sanitation.

Keywords: Bacteria, CMT, Prevalence, SCM, Quarter, Parity, Enrofloxacin.
