Don’t think vaccination is important? Research shows 60 percent to 70 percent of coliform mastitis infections become clinical.1 Coliform mastitis, when it occurs, can become severe and cause these negative impacts on your cows:

  • Fever
  • Abnormal milk
  • Excessive udder edema
  • Dramatic drop in milk production
  • Death

Vaccination with an Escherichia coli (E. coli) vaccine can help lessen the severity of mastitis cases that do
occur and provide a better opportunity for successful treatment. Help protect your cows against coliform mastitis through vaccination, environmental management and proper nutrition.

Are your cows protected against coliform mastitis? Learn why mastitis prevention should be part of your milk quality program at www.milkqualityfocus.com. Dave Venard, manager with Waupun State Farm, and Dan Funke, quality milk manager with Pfizer Animal Health, stress the importance of E. coli mastitis vaccination to give your cows the best chance for a healthy lactation.
