Abstract


The aim is to assess whether homeopathy or other unconventional methods could be used in the treatment or prevention of mastitis in cows and at the same time while measurement of basic microclimatic indicators to determine if a stable climate influences the incidence of mastitis.

Experiment is performed in a herd of about 120 pcs of cows. Cows with proven mastitis are divided into two groups –the control and experimental group. In the experimental group selected auxiliary means according to specific methodological instruction were given to cows according to specific methodological instruction to strengthen the immunity of their organism. Other husbandry and veterinary care was maintained in the same usual extent as in the control group. In both groups the occurrence of health disorders is recorded after a specified period of time describing the method used and the required treatment time. During the experiment basic microclimatic parameters (temperature, humidity, airflow, cooling value) are monitored continuously.
