Mastitis, mostly caused by bacterial infection of the mammary gland, is the major infectious disease problem in dairy cows, being estimated to cost the global dairy industry €16–26 billion per. Bovine mastitis is the most costly disease of dairy cattle. Single site studies are often limited in terms of expertise and cattle numbers. The scope and complexity of the problem is beyond the ability of any one institution. Collaborative efforts among researchers at various .
A cost of mastitis that is not always readily apparent to dairy farmers is the reduced cheese yield that results from milk with an elevated somatic cell count. It has been estimated that overall economic losses (direct and indirect costs) due to mastitis in the US alone amounts to about $2 billion each year. Mastitis is a complicated and costly problem for the dairy farmer. No simple solutions are available for its prevention. Some aspects are well understood and documented in scientific literature. Others are controversial and opinions are often presented as facts.
