The present research work was carried out to evaluate prophylactic potential of Tri-sodium citrate powder in subclinical mastitis in milking cows. The study involved twelve HF cross dairy cows in which each diagnosed with at least one subclinical mastitis quarter. The six (n=6) cows from conventional and six (n=6) cows from loose housing system with raised SCC were administered Tri-sodium citrate powder @ 30 mg/kg B.W. orally BID for five days. The SCC values of infected quarters were reduced significantly (P < 0.05) on 28th day after Tri-sodium citrate therapy as compared to value on day ‘O’ before therapy both in loose housing and conventional housing system. The percent efficacy in improvement of infected quarter after administration of Tri-sodium citrate powder in conventional and loose housing system was 63.63 % and 58.33 % respectively. Thus, results indicated that tri-sodium citrate having prophylactic potential in controlling mastitis in cows in both conventional and loose housing system.
