PUTRI FURQONI AMALIA KHAMARANI. Effects of Pens Humidity Level on The Occurance of Subclinical Mastitis and Bovine Tuberculosis in Dairy Cattle at Bogor. Supervised by MIRNAWATI BACHRUM SUDARWANTO and MAZDANI ULFAH DAULAY.
Climate is essentials for livestock production and animals health. Poor humidity level will affect thermoregulatory responses of animals, which would make animals more susceptible to diseases. Subclinical mastitis is an inflammation of the mammary gland without visible sign of the disease, but can reduce milk production and quality. Bovine Tuberculosis is a chronic disease caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex, able to infect practically most of mammalian species. The aim of this study is to determine the influence of pens humidity level to subclinical mastitis and bovine tuberculosis incidences on cattle. This research took place at Kawasan Usaha Peternakan (KUNAK) and Kebon Pedes Bogor. One hundred eighty five (185) milk samples from forty seven (47) cattle were used for subclinical mastitis test in normal lactation, and forty seven (47) cattle samples were used for tuberculin test. The result showed that there was no association (p > 0.05) between humidity level to both subclinical mastitis and tuberculosis incidence in Bogor. Risk factors of both variable, humidity level towards subclinical mastitis (SK 95% 0.82–3.15) and humidity level towards tuberculosis (SK 95% 0.55–3.15) was insignificant.
Key words: bovine tuberculosis, humidity, subclinical mastitis.
