Current control methods are not effective in eliminating various mastitis pathogens, and antimicrobial therapy introduces some risk of contaminating dairy products with antibiotic residues. Individuals involved in animal agriculture are sensitive to their responsibility to prevent antibiotic residues from entering the food chain.
