A recent study led by MycoLab researchers takes new steps to eliminating Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae (M. hyopneumoniae), a bacterium that causes respiratory illness in pigs. M. hyopneumoniae is one of the most significant bacterial swine pathogens worldwide, impacting animal welfare and causing significant economic losses for the swine industry. The findings from this study demonstrate a diagnostic strategy aimed at helping to eliminate the pathogen from individual herds—and eventually, to eradicate it altogether.Continue reading “A diagnostic approach to confirm Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae “Day zero” for pathogen eradication”
The Swine Disease Eradication Center is proud to present another episode of “Processing the Litter-ature”: a podcast in which peer-reviewed papers are docked, clipped and supplemented with a field perspective.
In this episode, Drs. Emily McDowell and Amanda Sponheim discuss the paper “Pooled-sample testing for detection of Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae during late experimental infection as a diagnostic tool for a herd eradication program.”
This is our most popular series on the blog. Once a month, we are sharing with you a presentation given at the Allen D. Leman swine conference, on topics that the swine group found interesting, innovative or that lead to great discussions.
You can find all of the presentations selected from previous conferences on the blog here.
The 2023 Allen D. Leman swine conference is less than a month away. Register here!Continue reading “Best of Leman 2022: Paul Yeske – Recirculation of M. hyopneumoniae in previously immune animals”
This week, we are sharing a review article, a collaborative effort between numerous leaders in swine mycoplasmosis, including UMN Dr. Maria Pieters, regarding the methodology to assess respiratory tract lesions at the slaughter house, available in open access on the Veterinary Research website.Continue reading “Review on the methodology to assess respiratory tract lesions in pigs and their production impact”
Today, we are sharing a recent publication from the MycoLab investigating how two different gilt flow managements during acclimation impact Mycoplasma detection. The full publication is available on the journal’s website.Continue reading “The effect of gilt flow management during acclimation on Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae detection”
