Mastitis and reproduction disorders in Holstein and Czech Fleckvieh dairy cows - comparison of occurrence in Czechia
The study compares the occurrence of mastitis and selected reproductive disorders (dystocia, retained placenta, metritis, endometritis and cystic ovary disease) in Holstein (H) and Czech Fleckvieh (C) cows. H cows had a significantly higher lactation incidence (LIR) for most of the evaluated disorders. Whereas the same level of LIR was found in clinical mastitis in primiparous C and H cows, the pluriparous C cows had lower LIR. The same parity pattern was found for dystocia, metritis and retained placenta in both breeds.
