- Calcium Silicate, dairy cow, bedding, mastitis
Mastitis is still a serious problem in dairy cows industry because mastitis cause farmers will decrease milk production. This paper described the Calcium Silicate (CaSi) powder application as dairy cow bedding and their impact to dairy cow health. Indirect somatic cell count test (IPB-1 test) has applied to inform the prevalence of mastitis in dairy cow population on farm and to diagnose mastitis in experimental dairy cows. Experimental dairy cows were average 5 year-old and in 3rd lactation. The results showed that manure moisture on flour cage was reduced significantly with application of 500 gram CaSi powder on flour cage, but milk production was not. Mastitis prevalence in farm is 54.29% and 8 from 9 experimental dairy cows was diagnosed mastitis. Experimental dairy cows with application of 500 gram CaSi powder on flour cage showed fewer dairy cows were diagnosed mastitis. The conclusion is the application of CaSi powder can reduce water in manure so that it interferes the growth of pathogenic microorganisms that can cause udder inflammation
