Abstract

Six hundred and thirty clinically-normal milk samples from dairy goat flocks comprising a mixed population of German Alpine, Toggenburg, Saanen and Galla crosses were examined over a 3-month period to determine the prevalence of bacterial organisms. Bacteria were isolated in 28.7% of the milk samples (181/630) either singly(92.8 % ) or in combination (7.2 %). The most prevalent bacterial organisms were Staphylococcus spp.(60.3 %), followed by Micrococcus spp. (17.7 %), Acinetobacter spp.(5 %), Actinomyces spp. (5 %) and Streptococcus spp. (1.1 %). The Staphylococcus spp, were mainly coagulasenegative (64.3 %). Coagulase-negative staphylococci and coagulase-positivestaphylococci accounted for 37.5 % and 22.7 % respectively of the total bacteria isolated. The isolation of bacteria, some of which are important in clinical and subclinical mastitis, in apparently normal caprine milk, indicates that particular attention should be given to the management of these dairy goat flocks in order to avoid the development of cases of clinical mastitis.
