The present field study was aimed to investigate the efficacy of a bio-hygienizating additive as an agent for the microbial dairy bedding control, and also the possible role of this product to get down the somatic cell counts in milk. The results showed a significant reduction of the bacteria evaluated in the treated bedding suggesting, if confirmed by further studies, that this method could represent an important key management practise to: 1) control some pathogen bacteria in field; 2) improve the hygiene of the cow house; 3) improve both the cow welfare and health and also the animal productions

Abstract

The present field study was aimed to investigate the efficacy of a bio-hygienizating additive as an agent for the microbial dairy bedding control, and also the possible role of this product to get down the somatic cell counts in milk. The results showed a significant reduction of the bacteria evaluated in the treated bedding suggesting, if confirmed by further studies, that this method could represent an important key management practise to: 1) control some pathogen bacteria in field; 2) improve the hygiene of the cow house; 3) improve both the cow welfare and health and also the animal productions
