ABSTRACT: Two hundred untreated milk samples from cows including 30 from those with mastitis were studied to detect the presence of Streptococcus agalactiae and other microorganisms. Two strains of S. agalactiae were isolated from 30 milk samples obtained from cows with mastitis. None of the healthy animals had shown the presence of S. agalactiae in their milk. The other microorganisms isolated from both the categories of milk samples were Staphylococcus spp (21.5 percent), Micrococcus spp (15.0 percent), other streptococci (7.5 percent), Escherichia coli (6.0 percent0, Klebsiella spp. (3.0 percent), Enterococcus spp (3.0 percent) and Bacillus spp (1.5 percent).
