Aim: To study the prevalence of mycotic mastitis in bovines of Mathura
Materials and Methods: A total of 100 milk samples collected from
seven different regions of Mathura were examined by cultural, morphological and
Results: Out of 100 milk samples processed 64
samples were found positive for fungal isolates. The most common isolates were
Candida albicans, Aspergillus fumigatus and Aspergillus niger.
The results of the present study suggest that Candida spp and Aspergillus spp
are the main fungi involved in bovine mastitis in this region. Good hygiene and
sanitation practices of animal farm and judicious use of antibiotics will lower
incidence of bovine mycotic mastitis.
