Udder and Milk Quality
Quality milk is milk that is produced by a healthy udder, free of unwanted substances (e.g. antibiotics), and stored, treated and processed properly. The starting point is a healthy udder. Udder health is about mastitis, which means an infection of the udder, resulting in heat, swelling and changes in the milk. Mastitis can be visible (clinical) or invisible (subclinical). The detection and prevention of milk with mastitis is important.
