This is an interesting forum from our Spanish community, generated by Enrique Astorga from Canada:
As a dairy farmer if you should take a hit of over 80 of mastitis treating the problem without resorting to antibiotics, is to leave your old practices using antibiotics or try to see other alternatives? What would you say if you have 90 success in treatment?
Many dairy farmers in North America are in the search for alternative treatments without antibiotics because they have done much harm to animal health and that is the case of mastitis. With the use of antibiotics in the industry for a long period, no one believes in other alternatives on the market. Breteler Paul from Ontario, Canada, all the time was indifferent because it did not believe in the other alternatives, he decided to become more scientific in its evaluation of other treatments for mastitis with a degree in agricultural sciences in the Netherlands. Breteler didn’t think much about using a natural lotion udders that his neighbors used. He had tried other creams and nothing gave him the results he expected. This creamy lotion is no secret his name is Udder Comfort.
During a period of 5 months, Breteler documented each case of mastitis in 80 cows. Working with laboratory Mayer, culture tests were conducted to identify the microorganisms present in each case. Five different organisms were found in the 11 tests carried out: Staphylococcus aureus, Staph.Sp, Strep.no-ag., E.coli and yeast.
Using the lotion 2 times daily after each milking for a period of 5 days, Breteler was surprised to reach a success rate of 82 in the treatment of mastitis. If he had not excluded from the evidence a cow thet did not eat and had a high fever, its success rate would have been more than 90.
Nicks Thurles experience, allows to see the benefits related to treatment with natural lotion. The cost of treatment is $ 5 per cow and is a natural product, and we can still keep the milk in the tank
Dr. Doug Evans, a veterinarian and breeder of Ayrshires, after 31 years he was convinced and now recommends the product. The use it in the morning and afternoon in cows to stop and have edema.
An improvement was noted between 12 and 24 hours after applying the treatment and disappearance of edema is the 2 or 3 days. To use Udder Comfort mastitis without resorting to antibiotics, in cases of mastitis that are not severe, in which the cow is of a bit of fever and which retains its appetite. In 48 hours these cows are recovered only simple lotion. If you think desirable may also give an aspirin or Bonamin as directed by your veterinarian.
Breteler, said that the high percentage of success was due to 3 key factors:
1) Because it is only a natural and effective formula of the lotion.
Its active ingredients are pepper mint oil, tea tree, menthol and lanolin. Pepper Mint is known for its cooling effects, and ease the pain. Scientists say that tea tree oil has an antiseptic effect, antifungal, antibacterial.
2) Suggests applying the cream to the early unusual signs in milk. For example, a milk cow that keeps the udder is hard, a single application is sufficient to help make it normal. The treatment is preventative rather than curative.
Finally, Breteler suggests that a regular application for 2 days after the appearance of lumps in the milk allows a great success in the treatment of mastitis in addition to smooth out the udder. He recommends performing a massage on the affected side, like the contour of the ligaments over a minute akin to ensure that all parties concerned are well covered. If you compare the cost of antibiotic treatment and disposal cost of milk, the economy is $ 20 per cow. It is interesting to use since this is a unique and natural. Do not you think so?
Is there a more effective natural solution?
