Oct 25, 2023

Mycoplasma, a group of bacteria, is integral to swine health management due to its potential to cause respiratory diseases, particularly Mycoplasma Hyopneumoniae. These infections lead to reduced growth rates, heightened medication costs, and compromised herd performance. Effective mycoplasma control strategies are essential for herd health and economic sustainability. In this episode, Dr. Donna Drebes, a production veterinarian at Seaboard Foods, discusses optimal strategies for mycoplasma hyopneumoniae gilt acclimation, emphasizing the importance of intratracheal inoculation and in-house autogenous products, providing valuable insights for producers.
