Abstract
A study was conducted to determine the prevalence and antibiotic resistance of methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) from bovine mastitis in settled Fulani herds in Kaduna state. Three hundred and sixty milk samples were collected from randomly selected herds in Kaduna South, Igabi, Lere, Sabon-Gari, Giwa and Zaria and examined. The prevalence of mastitis at cow level was 26.9%, out of which 3.1% and 23.9% were clinical and subclinical mastitis, respectively. The prevalence of both S. aureus and MRSA were 15.3% and 7.8 % respectively. Significant proportion (42.9%) of the MRSA were isolated from cases of mastitis (P

Key words: Prevalence, antibiotic susceptibility MRSA, Bovine mastitis, cow milk, multi drug resistance, extensive drug resistance (XDR), minimum inhibitor concentration, Penicillin Binding Protein 2a
