Building on more than 10 years of research and collaboration on Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae control, Boehringer Ingelheim and the University of Minnesota have launched the M. hyopneumoniae Eradication Roadmap to equip veterinarians and producers with a holistic resource to inform, prepare and guide them through the M. hyopneumoniae eradication process.  

The roadmap incorporates breakthrough research and guidance from the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine and Boehringer Ingelheim pertaining to refined exposure methods, diagnostic questions, day-0 determination and end-of-herd-closure confirmations, among others. 

“The University of Minnesota has been a driving force behind M. hyopneumoniae eradication research for more than 10 years,” said Maria Pieters, DVM, PhD, associate professor with the Department of Veterinary Population Medicine, University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine, and Director of the Swine Disease Eradication Center. “Boehringer Ingelheim has been a trusted research partner throughout that time, and we are proud to be launching this in collaboration with them, to provide the industry with this much-needed resource.”  

The M. hyopneumoniae Eradication Roadmap not only provides direction around the main elements and steps of an eradication program, but also outlines clear expectations of up-front costs and considerations to achieve it. Featuring key learnings, research and practical instruction from more than 25 industry thought leaders, including practicing veterinarians, producers and academics, the roadmap is a free and convenient, all-in-one resource.  

“This Roadmap is unique in that it was born out of true industry collaboration,” said Amanda Sponheim, DVM, key account veterinarian, Boehringer Ingelheim. “Until now, veterinarians would have had to piece together information and best practices from multiple sources to build a Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae eradication program. Thanks to the input of dozens of esteemed colleagues, the Roadmap is a one-stop-shop for planning and executing an eradication program.”   

Free to access and designed to be used independently by producers and veterinarians, the M. hyopneumoniae Eradication Roadmap can be utilized with as much or as little support as is needed. Access the Roadmap here, or talk to your Boehringer Ingelheim veterinarian to learn more.
