Outbreaks of mycotic mastitis in dairy cattle usually are associated with intramammary treatment with contaminated antibacterial preparations. Silage may be the source of lactate-assimilating yeasts known to cause mastitis, especially Candida krusei. Environmental contamination, concomitant with additional factors such as inadequate milking hygiene, may cause outbreaks of mycotic mastitis in dairy cattle that have not received intramammary treatment.
