Mastitis in dairy cattle is the persistent, inflammatory reaction of the udder tissue. Mastitis, a potentially fatal mammary gland infection, is the most common disease in dairy cattle. Hence, this paper was distributed to work out the existence of mastitis victimization three diagnostic tests by the different risk factors like lactation, age, breed, quarters, herd and season. The results shows that surf field mastitis check (SFMT) is that the most sensitive check for identification of bovine mastitis, the aged cows with later a part of lactation amount were additional vulnerable to bovine mastitis, and exotic breeds like Holstein freshen (HF) were additional liable to bovine mastitis. The existence of subclinical and clinical mastitis was additional in single and two quarters, severally, and therefore the rate of bovine mastitis was additional in unorganized herds. The study shows that SCM is directly related to lactation amount, age, and environmental factors of the cow and clinical mastitis is additional related to breed of the cow and environmental conditions.
