Plant Pathology Conducting Studies to Combat Mastitis

Prof Mark Laing from the Discipline of Plant Pathology at SAEES is presently conducting studies to utilize bacteriophages to combat mastitis in dairy cows.

Staphyloccocus aureus can infect the udders of cows, causing mastitis. This costs the dairy industry millions of rands every year.

Worse still, the antibiotics being used to control mastitis are not working against resistant Staph aureus strains.

This project is about finding beneficial viruses that infect and kill Staph aureus strains on cows, to provide an alternative treatment technology.

Watch this video below and see what alternative for antibiotics Prof Laing is working on.
