I read somewhere that if Cows milk is not removed from it, by milking it, the milk would cause some disease for cow. I couldnt find any more information on this? does anyone knows if its true?

Thanks.

I think you're talking about mastitus. In a heavy milking cow, if for instance, she has a calf and then loses it, she does run a risk of getting mastitus. Certainly it doesn't happen all the time, and the only time I've ever had it happen was with a Holstein or Jersey cow, but something to keep an eye on, if you lose a calf.

Google mastitis. It is generally only a problem for dairy breeds, but can also happen in beef breeds if she is a very heavy milker.

Mastitis, ruptures, extreme edema, etc. The cow would be in a lot of pain.
