I know this post is from FOREVER ago but maybe there's someone else like me only looking at this now. I recently had an issue with mastitis in our new Jersey cow. The milk tasted very salty. YUCK! I tried using penicillin but it didnt seem to work for me. I went to my local store and they had natural products that work for mastitis. I thought I'd give them a try. The product was called Yellow Jacket...weird right? This stuff worked great! It only took a week to get rid of her mastitis and I didnt have to dump any of the milk. This is what I did...
I milked out my cow then put 30 ml of the Yellow Jacket in the bad teat.
The next milking a squirted out all the bad milk which was about 10-15 squirts.
Then I milked her out again and put another 30 ml in.
I did this for 4 milkings in a row then I stopped!
I gave her a full week to the mastitis to clean out.
Of course I kept milking her for that period. I just squirted the mastitis out before each milking. The gentleman at the store said it will look worse before it gets better because it is cleaning out the infection. It sure did look worse at first but it worked great and I didnt have to dump any of the milk!
They also had a good herbal cream that I rubbed on the udder and that has been very helpful. They have a website where you can buy all of this. Give it a try! www.synergyanimalproducts.com
