In farm based control strategies of Staphylococcus aureus mastitis, focus should be placed on prevention of new infections. Various farm, herd and parlour based practices have been suggested to be implemented in a S. aureus mastitis control strategy. However, developing or evaluating existing control strategies of S. aureus mastitis can be complicated as various environmental, animal and human sources have been suggested as possible reservoirs for mastitis causing S. aureus.
