GADVASU scientist attends International Conference

Ludhiana-05-July, 2013

Dr. Raj Sukhbir Singh, a city-based scientist of Guru Angad Dev Veterinary and Animal Sciences University, Ludhiana, attended the "15th International Conference on Production Diseases in Farm Animals" recently held at Swedish Agricultural University, Uppsala, Sweden. The conference was attended by more than 200 scientists from all over the world.

Working as an assistant professor in the Department of Teaching Veterinary Clinical Complex, he presented part of his Ph. D. research work entitled "The relationship of teat end hyperkeratosis with teat morphology and subclinical mastitis in Holstein Friesian, Sahiwal crossbred dairy cows" at the conference. The paper was co-authored by B K Bansal, D K Gupta, S N S Randhawa and P S Dhaliwal. His work involved one of the most important aspects of dairy cow health i.e. udder health. Mastitis, an inflammation of udder, is of significant economic importance in Punjab\'s dairy farming. Now-a-days most of the milking at the dairy farms is being carried out with milking machines and if not properly used, these machines may lead to development of teat end lesions also called "hyperkeratosis". He further said that formation of teat end lesions was associated with the teat shape and also these lesions make the udder susceptible to mastitis.
