Improved cow hygiene will have a significant impact in herds dealing with environmental mastitis, says Jeff Reneau, professor and dairy management specialist at the University of Minnesota.

Basic management practices — clipping or flaming udders, providing freshly bedded, clean, dry and comfortable stalls, frequent alley scraping, and moving cows quietly and slowly — will help improve cow hygiene. And, improved cow hygiene will reduce teat exposure to mastitis pathogens, thus reducing environmental mastitis and somatic cell counts.
