MCP – Mastitis Control Project



Mastitis is a major culprit for dairy industry. This is not only the problem of our country but its prevalence is worldwide. Every year nearly 40 billion rupees loss India has to bear by loss of milk production due to this disease. Mastitis causes 20 – 25 % loss in milk production when an animal is affected from this disease.

In order to prevent this loss by mastitis, we follow sound strategic programs at farmers’ door step level. Being a managemental disease, farmers are to be awared of hygienic/clean milk production. Training programs for animal hygiene, udder hygiene, utensils hygiene, personal hygiene etc. we follow to control this disease. Mastitis Detection Kit and its usage training is being given to farmers to detect an early infection of mastitis. Also, Teat Dip Solution is supplied at subsidized rate (50%) to prevent mastitis.
