    Abstract

    Milk samples from infected udders contained more lactoperoxidase and more thiocyanate than before infection. Irritation of 10 quarters of 5 cows caused the increase in the bacteriostatic activity of milk. Bacteriostatic activity of milk from the udders infected with staphylococci dropped after several weeks of chronic mastitis.
