In order to provide safe and creditable livestock products, the removal of harm must be a top priority. The biggest hazards to livestock products are the contamination of antibiotics and pathogenic microorganisms. The largest problem in dairy farms is the occurrence of mastitis. I am struggling against the development of effective means to control mastitis.
