  • Hvis der i en besætning er 50 kliniske tilfælde pr. 100 køer pr. år og hvert tilfælde varer 4 dage, så vil man kunne forvente at finde ca. en ko med klinisk mastitis for hver 200 køer, som man formalker. -  
  • Traditionelt baseres sorteringen på subjektiv bedømmelse i forbindelse med formalkning. - Kvægbrugets forsøgscenter i Foulum
