The Use of Chlorine Teat Dips in the Control of Mastitis

Authors: A.F. Hehir and C.G. Beck


The effectiveness of chlorine teat dips, at concentrations of available chlorine of 1.5 and 5.0% was assessed over eight and twelve-week periods respectively. Both concentrations effectively reduced the bacterial level in milk from dipped quarters relative to that from un-dipped quarters. The cell count levels were also reduced relatively, although this reduction was retarded by a temporary irritative effect of the chlorine dip. It was concluded that these chlorine formulations are effective teat dips but may cause epidermal irritation of transient papilloma around the teat orifice.
