Abstract :

Mastitis or udder inflammation is the arch nemesis of the dairy industry. Mastitis serves as the main profit killer for dairy farmers. In the past, this problem was dealt with antibiotics that easily treated mastitis by killing its causative pathogens. Quite recently this nuisance has become even more problematic as the bacteria began to gain antibiotic resistance against the antibiotics that were used to treat mastitis. This called for use of an immediate alternative like nanoparticles to kill the bacteria. A cheaper and better way to get these nanoparticles was found to be by extracting them from plant products.
