The results obtained were as follows: 1. One hundred and thirty quarters (35.7%) from 67 cows (73.6%) were found to be infected with mastitis. It was found that 5 (1.37%) of the infected quarters were clinical mastitis and all of the rest were subclinical mastitis (125 quarters). 2. The main causative agents were found to be Staphylococcus aureus (46 quarters), Streptococcus agalactiae (49 quarters), streptococcus disgalactiae (18 quarters), Steptococcus uberis (13 quarters).
