Mastitis, from a disease standpoint is the most important problem concerning the dairy industry today. Veterinarians should meet the challenge offered by this problem and apply all the measures that we have found to stand the test of time and trial. There are countless preparations that have been offered by many individuals and organizations who are interested mostly in the financial end of the problem. This has amounted to a concerted effort to side track all that has been known in the treatment of his disease in favor of the use of medicinal agents. It is indeed unfortunate that so many worthy and necessary practices have been forgotten during this era of seeking sure-fire shortcuts to the cure of mastitis.
