This publication is available in a PDF file format only.

Mastitis cases caused by yeast and mold are typically sporadic and are usually not a significant issue in a herd. Yeast form white or creamcolored colonies that can easily be confused with coagulase-negative staphylococci. Gram staining will differentiate yeast from CNS; yeast are two to three times larger than CNS and typically exhibit budding. Mold colonies can have a fluffy texture and exhibit several different colors.
