Short summary
The team that prepared this article developed and patented electrical teat dipping (ETD) to prevent cow mastitis. ETD was developed by combining teat dipping application and an electrical field stimulation technique on teats. In this study, it was aimed to determine the effects of ETD on clinical mastitis incidence and bulk tank milk somatic cell counts on dairy farms. Based on our findings, we conclude that the effects of ETD on mastitis rates reduction are very positive.
