Recent studies reveal that the rate of total bacterial count in milk decreases, but the somatic cell count is high and stagnant, showing an improvement in the actions of hygiene in the production chain in general, but the real control of mastitis in cattle Brazil has not yet reached the level of excellence, reaffirming that this is a complex and multi-sectoral.
