In present investigation, a total 440 quarter milk samples of 110 Bubalis bubalis were screened for subclinical mastitis (SCM) to find out the occurrence and the causative agents of SCM in and around Hyderabad. Out of these, 76 quarters from 40 buffaloes were found positive based on bacterial culture. Here cultural examination was taken as standard test. Also, milk samples were subjected to California mastitis test, Somatic Cell Count, milk pH and milk fat to determine qualitative changes in milk and cultural examination were undertaken in the laboratory. Results of California mastitis test reveated trace, weak positive and distinct California mastitis test reactions. The mean values of Somatic Cell Count, milk pH was elevated significant (P < 0.01) as compared to healthy control buffaloes, While, mean values of milk fat decreased non-significantly as compared with healthy control buffaloes.

Key words: Buffaloes; Sub-Clinical Mastitis; California Mastitis Test; Somatic Cell Count; Milk pH and Milk Fat and Cultural Examination
