This study aims to determine the correlation between dairy cattle teat length at several lactation periods and subclinical mastitis profile. This study used 43 dairy cattle at several lactation periods. The lactation periods of the cows studied were lactation periods 1, 2, and 3. Subclinical mastitis testing used IPB-1 Mastitis Test, and teat length was measured using a measuring tape (cm). The data is taken and then analyzed using the average and described. The results showed that the average teat length of 5.11 cm did not experience subclinical mastitis, while the average teat length was 5.48 cm, 6.09 cm, and 7.28 cm, respectively, had subclinical mastitis. The highest incidence of subclinical mastitis is influenced by teat length and lactation period. The length of the teat and the lactation period, the higher the severity of subclinical mastitis. These findings are essential for a practical clinical diagnostic approach in dairy cattle with subclinical mastitis.
