Can we eliminate Mycoplasma?

Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae is a bacterial pathogen that has been an industry concern for over 50 years. It generally originates at the sow farm level and is a vertical disease meaning it's transferred from sow to piglet.

In this 39th episode of SwineTime, host Spencer Wayne talks all things Mycoplasma with fellow Pipestone Veterinarian Emily McDowell. McDowell has been with Pipestone for nine years now and has a special interest in Mycoplasma. She continues to research Mycoplasma in hopes of increasing the success of elimination from sow herds and to educate the swine industry how it spreads and the cost associated with it.

Throughout the episode, listeners will gain a better understanding of what an affected barn looks like, the cost associated with it and what McDowell has learned in her years of research.
