Abstract

Staphylococcus aureus is one of the major contagious pathogens causing bovine mastitis worldwide.1 It causes contagious mastitis resulting either clinical or subclinical mastitis with increase in the number of somatic cell count (SCC) in milk. More than $130 million is lost by the Australian dairy farmers ($A200/cow/year) every year due to poor udder health caused by mastitis resulting in reduction of milk production, increase in treatment costs, veterinary consultation fees, and number of cow culls. There are multiple pathogens that have been found to be associated with bovine mastitis in Australia.2 While the relative distribution of the different pathogens causing mastitis may differ in different regions and countries, S. aureus is one of the most significant contagious bacterial pathogens causing bovine mastitis and is of concern to public health because of its potential for transmission to humans...
