Three candidate genes associated with mastits, MBL2, SPP1 and Lf were genotyped in a sample of HF cattle affected by mastitis and in the control group. At MBL2 locus the genotype variant associated with mastitis disease was GA, at Lf gene locus, two alleles (H and G) were identified with variable proportions in the samples studied, however in this study the incidence of mastitis was higher in animals with genotype GH. The results for SPP1 gene showed higher frequency of genotype GG in mastitis cases. The SCC was also included as additional parameter in the study.
