National Mastitis Council’s next webinar features “From Dairy Lab to Veterinary Lab: The Do’s and Don’ts of Mastitis Diagnostics.” This free, one-hour educational offering starts at 2 p.m. on June 24.
During the webinar, Justine Britten, an NMC board member and laboratory director at Udder Health Systems of Meridian, Idaho, will discuss mastitis diagnostics, including microbiological culture, molecular methods and on-farm culture. Key topics include primary differences between most on-farm labs and commercial milk quality labs; complexity levels of diagnosing mastitis pathogens; advantages and disadvantages of culture-based methods versus molecular methods; and interpretation of results and use in management decisions.
