Mastitis Management

Mastitis is a costly disease for dairy herds and with a team of vets skilled in mastitis management, we’re here to help you minimise its impact on your cows. We are Australia’s exclusive distributor of the Mastaplex which identifies the causative bacteria behind each suspected case of mastitis. Based on the Mastaplex results your local vet can prescribe the most appropriate treatment to ensure prudent antibiotic use. Mastaplex can be purchased and used on farm. It’s easy and fast to use. Simply pour each milk sample, and place it in the machine and Mastaplex will email your veterinarian the results within 24 hours. Mastaplex takes the guess work out of mastitis treatment. With the recommendation of the right antibiotic or whether antibiotics are required at all, Mastaplex will save you time and money by minimising antibiotic use.
