Summary

Since the use of VIMCO® there has been a decrease in the BTSCC (20%). VIMCO® is a tool that we can include with other preventive measures to avoid the transmission of staphylococci on dairy sheep farms. This will contribute to the control of subclinical mastitis on the farm, improving the profitability of the farm, reducing the use of antibiotics and increasing milk quality.
