Usually, the majority of the infections is caused by the contagious pathogens Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus agalactiae, and by the environmental pathogens Streptococcus uberis, disgalactiae, Coliforms.Staphylococcus aureus is the most problematic pathogen in many countries (Persson et al., 2011; Keane et al., 2013; Verbeke et al., 2014) and can negatively influence somatic cell count and milk yield throughout lactation (Paradis et al., 2010).

Adicionalmente, se encontro que 37 cepas correspondientes al 14,2 % mostraron actividad beta hemolitica en agar sangre, presentando actividad negativa para la prueba de la catalasa, y morfologia de cocos en cadena, por lo que se aislaron en agar selectivo para Streptococcus, posteriormente a estos aislados se les realizo la prueba de CAMP, clasificandose estas cepas como Streptococcus agalactiae.
