Exploring the Impact of the Bedded Pack Ecosystem on Mastitis Transmission Pathways on Dairy Farms

Feedback form is now closed.

Ever wonder what is hanging out on your pack?  It’s not just cows!  This will be a presentation of early results in ongoing research into the relationship between bacteria, flies, and microscopic animals in bedded pack dairy systems.  What’s the difference between the bacteria living on a mastitic teat and a clean teat?  What do horn flies have to do with it?  How about stable flies?  How do predatory mites fit into the picture?  Come ponder these questions and more with wide-eyed but friendly UVM graduate student Tucker Andrews.
