Prevalence and management practices associated with bulk tank milk/ Prevalence of staphylococcus aureus and coliforms in Azorean dairy herds

The aims of the present study were to determine the apparent prevalence of Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli and other coliforms (COL) from bulk tank milk (BTM) samples of dairy farms from Azores, to evaluate the management milking practices associated with these pathogens prevalence, and consequently, the ultimate goal was to emphasize the indication, in Azorean dairy farms, for the use of the first vaccine registered by EMA (European Medicine Agency) for the prevention of mastitis caused by these pathogens (STARTVAC®, HIPRA, Spain).

Resumen

These results should be considered in the design of mastitis prevention and control plans for the control of milk quality and suggest that vaccination for the prevention of mastitis (STARTVAC®) can be a real asset as an additional tool in a mastitis control plan in the Azorean dairy herds.
