Unsanitary, dirty pens represent high number of bacteria and high risk of mastitis because:

  • Cows lie down on dirty beds, and udder become contaminated.
  • Manure is scattered on cows’ udders when they are forced to run or walk fast.

Scrape pens every time cows are milked (2 or 3 times per day)

Provide clean bedding 1 or 2 times per week.

Remember: The bed is in direct contact with the udder.
