The effect of gilt flow management during acclimation on Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae detection

Recently the UMN MycoLab published a paper in the Veterinary Microbiology journal where they investigated how two different gilt flow managements during acclimation impact Mycoplasma detection.

Highlights of the research included:
  • Two strategies were evaluated for Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae gilt acclimation.
  • M. hyopneumoniae detection and seroconversion were assessed in gilts over time.
  • Similar M. hyopneumoniae seroconversion was similar regardless of gilt flow.
  • Genetic variability of M. hyopneumoniae was not significant in gilts.
The full publication is available on the journal’s website.
