How do you tell if a cow has it and how would you treat her? My heifer has scabs on the tips of her uders and also on her "belly button" is this a sign of a bigger problem? I think this is just from flies biting her.

The udder usually or sometimes just the tests will be swollen and inflammed. However, if she is milking, the milk would appear abnormal and the affected quarter would feel very hot. If she doesn't have mastitis I would treat her, I would try to control the flys instead.
