Mastitis is an inflammation of udder which is mainly caused by coliforms and other microorganism. It is a most economically important disease in bovines. In the present study a total number of 100 bovine mastitis milk samples were collected. All the samples were inoculated into enrichment broth which was further cultured on Mac-Conkey plate. Out of these 42 samples that were showing lactose fermentation were further streaked on EMB selective agar plates. Colonies showing metallic sheen were processed for biochemical analysis. Based on the morphological, cultural and biochemical characterization indicated that 40 isolates were E. coli. E. coli is one of the most important bacterium of coliform group that causes mastitis in bovine.
