Abstract Rates of environmental streptococcal and coliform intramammary infections were compared among quarters uninfected and infected with either Corynebacterium bovis or Staphylococcus species. Rate of environmental streptococcal intramammary infections was 3.9 times greater in C. bovis-infected quarters than in uninfected quarters. Rate of environmental streptococcal infections was 2.6 times greater in quarters infected with Staphylococcus species than in uninfected quarters. Rate of coliform intramammary infections did not differ among quarters with differing bacteriological infection statuses. Quarters infected with either C. bovis or Staphylococcus species had higher milk SCC than did uninfected quarters. Intramammary infection with either Corynebacterium bovis or Staphylococcus species did not protect quarters against coliform infection. Rate of environmental streptococcal infections was enhanced in quarters infected with either C. bovis or Staphylococcus species.
