The Laboratory for Udder Health will resume normal testing services, effective 4/23/2020, with the following exception: 

  • Full Mastitis Culture – Submissions of 20 or fewer individual cow or quarter samples only

We are not able to process large number of samples submitted for Full Mastitis Culture due to limited staffing and social distancing requirements. Any client whose submissions we cannot accommodate will be notified. If you have any questions, you are encouraged to email the Lab for Udder Health at mastlab@umn.edu. With limited staffing, phone calls will be returned as soon as possible. 

The goal of the Laboratory for Udder Health is to provide high-quality laboratory services to dairy veterinarians, producers, and other industry professionals. Our core strengths are in microbiology and milk culturing. We are committed to developing innovative approaches in laboratory diagnostics to help the dairy industry produce the highest quality milk.
