Strong showing for Mastatest at the National Mastitis Council 2023 Annual Meeting

Mastatest has had a strong showing at the National Mastitis Council annual meeting 2023, in Atlanta, Georgia, USA.

CEO Dr Olaf Bork, and Dr Mark Thomas from our US partner Dairy Health & Management Services LLC presented to the conference breakfast session on 1 Feb. They focussed on the benefits of using the Mastatest on-farm mastitis diagnostic for rapid identification of pathogens, antibiotic sensitivity, and guiding the best on-farm treatment and management decisions for each individual case and the herd.

Mark also presented a poster 'Comparison of a Point-of-care Diagnostic Test to Identify Pathogens Associated with Clinical Mastitis in Dairy Cattle' that he and colleagues have authored, validating use of Mastatest in the USA.

Please do get in touch for more information if you missed either, or have follow-up questions about Mastatest.

Thanks to the organisers of NMC2023, and to those all those attendees who took the time to attend the breakfast session and to visit the poster. We look forward to NMC2024 in Ghent, Belgium.
