So. I have been dealing with mastitis in a doe..... for a month. I did send off a milk sample and got a prelim result. It is an ecoli related bug cannot remember the specific bug name. We are waiting for the sensitivity to come back to treat her again because today or tomorrow and pen g are not the thing to get rid of this mess. The only thing we can think is from this dumb super wet then dry a week the super wet again messy weather. I clean the shavings on the floor daily and scrape the poop off the loft. Because nothing in my milking routine had changed and we have never had a mastitis problem before now. But i do not want to deal with this again. We have a loft it is wood. The barn is getting a power wash and disinfect this week. So for the mats.... how to do clean yours? How often? Do you put down shavings or anything on top of them? Give me the low down on them please.
