Materials and Methods: Benefiting from statistical methods analyzed collecting data on udder health of 346 dairy cattle farms in different provinces of Turkey.

Results: It has been observed that there are maximum 50-200 cows (n = 96, 56.8% and at most Holstein breeds (n = 97, 57.4%)) in large-scale and 11-20 cows (n = 71, 40.1% and the highest number of Simental breeds (n = 153, 86.4%)) in small scale farms and there are 4 old cows more in these two types of farms. It was determined that the applications of teat dipping (70.4%), dry period antibiotics (72.8%), teat seal (9.5%) and mastitis vaccine (55.6%) in large farms were higher than small scale farms and It was determined that the proportion of those which do predipping and postdipping is higher than those which do not, and that iodine antiseptics are used the most in applications. The rate of those which do not apply milking hygiene in family-type (61.6%) is high.
