The study was designed to evaluate the supplementation of milk buffer, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals during dry period on occurrence of postpartum mastitis in an organized cattle farm. Twenty Holstein Friesian crossbred cows were selected with history of clinical mastitis in previous lactation. The animals were randomly divided in to two groups viz, T1: control and T2: supplemented with 10 grams of Vitamin, Mineral and Tri Sodium Citrate per head per day during dry period. Milk samples were collected and checked weekly for sub-clinical mastitis and clinical mastitis during postpartum period of 120 days. The results showed that significant difference in occurrence of postpartum mastitis among control and supplemented groups (70% and 20% respectively). Supplementation of milk butter, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals during dry period could significantly help in reducing the incidence of postpartum mastitis in crossbred cows.
