ABSTRACT
The article discusses the use of molecular mastitis testing to achieve maximum benefits. Topics covered include the identified causes of mastitis disease in dairy cows, the use of the milk polymerase chain reaction (PCR) molecular test by Australian dairyfarmers in determining mastitis in dairy cows and special features of different versions of the milk PCR test. It discusses recommendations developed by researchers in effectively using and interpreting the milk PCR test results.
