|Abstract||A previously reported increase in Nocardia mastitis in Canada was associated with the use of neomycin-based dry cow mastitis preparations; their production and distribution ceased in 1989. Since then the frequency of Nocardia isolations has declined in most provinces, particularly in British Columbia and Nova Scotia where the earliest and largest increases occurred. During July 1989-June 1990 the proportion of isolations to samples submitted ranged from 0.3% in Saskatchewan to 4.6% in Alberta, where the high incidence was probably associated with the establishment of a Nocardial Mastitis Task Force and an active detection programme..|
