Coagulase-Negative Staphylococci and Staphylococcus hyicus: A Practical Summary for Controlling Mastitis

DASC-63P  Coagulase-negative staphylococci (CNS) and Staphylococcus hyicus are mastitis-causing pathogens that originate from skin flora and are generally considered to be the most commonly isolated pathogens in well-managed herds. A prevalence of 10 to 15 percent infected quarters is common (Hogan et al. 1999), but an intramammary infection rate as high as 43 percent of infected quarters is reported in some studies (Dufour et al. 2012).
