The study was piloted as of November 2019 towards May 2020 to examine or evaluate the occurrence of bovine mastitis in and around Abomasa town; Oromia, Ethiopia. Californian Mastitis Test (CMT) did the ways of examination of the sample. Based on our current investigation, the overall mastitis positive cases were 41.92%, of which 16.66% (64/384) clinical and 25.26% (97/384) sub-clinical cases. Additionally, based on the examination of teat quarters, around 1524 quarters evaluated and 288 quarters (18.9%) paraded as affected by the pathogens and 148 teat quarters were infected by clinical mastitis and 0.78% (12/1536) quarters were blind. Out of 140 CMT positive subclinical quarters cultured, 129 (92.14%) bacterial growths were observed and 11(7.86%) showed no growth up on culture. Out of 129 bacterial growths observed, 55 (42.64%) Streptococcus agalactiae, 30 (23.26%) Staphylococcus aureus, 29 (22.48%) Streptococcus dysagalactiae and 8 (6.2%) Staphylococcus epidermidis were confirmed as the major cause of the bovine mastitis in study area and Other bacterial isolates were E. coli and Corynebacterium bovis contributed 5 (3.87%) and 2 (1.55%) respectively using 50% predictable occurrence of the disease, 95% sureness intermission, and 5% total accuracy..
