Annual losses in the dairy industry due to mastitis was almost 2.37 thousand crore rupees in India. The level of infection that develops inside the udder of a cow is dependent upon many factors. Although mastitis is caused by various bacteria, viruses, fungi and prototheca, the most common cause are Gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria.
