The AHDB Dairy Mastitis Control Plan is a proven, structured, evidence-based, nationwide approach to mastitis prevention and control in dairy cattle. It is a cost effective solution and supports both good animal welfare and the consumer image of dairy farming. The AHDB Dairy Mastitis Control Plan sits within AHDB’s range of technical services to assist dairy farmers with a variety of on farm issues. The University of Nottingham continues to contribute to and lead the technical information within the AHDB Dairy Mastitis Control Plan.
Trained vets and consultants, also known as Plan Deliverers, use farm-specific information, such as milk records, clinical records and on-farm questionnaires, to identify the main factors contributing to mastitis on farm. All of this information is brought together to produce a farm-specific set of practical recommendations.
This website is designed to act as a support resource for vets and consultants who deliver the plan. Resources for Plan Deliverers such as cost calculators, recording sheets, procedure guidelines, online reference material and promotional material can be accessed via this website.
