The article discusses the study conducted by N. J. Evans and colleagues which examines the association of treponemes with bovine ulcerative mammary dermatitis (UMD). It indicates the disease prevalence of UMD or mammary necrotic dermatitis which appear as lesions on the udder in dairy cows between the forequarters and ventral abdominal wall. The researchers have identified the strong association of the treponeme phylogroups to severe bovine digital dermatitis (BDD).
