Having been raised on a dairy, I have never heard that Mastitis can be caused by excess milk production. We had several cows that produced over 100 lbs. of milk per day and they were the ones least likely to come down with it.
As far as I know, Mastitis can only be caused by the introduction of a pathogen on the teats...............
