1) you should control MG and MS with the same strategy. (freedom, vaccination, or antibiotics)
2) you should source replacement that is mycoplasma free
3) if your farm is multiage then you should rear stock remotely (2 km away from other poultry) and vaccinate them for the challenges they will get when they are moved to the multiage site.
4) Use live MG and MS vaccine - one dose. Don't use killed vaccines - don't worry about serology after vaccination and don't give the birds antibiotics unless they have clinical signs and if they do have clinical signs, get a diagnosis - DIVA PCR

Chris Morrow if we have the same place for rearing and production then killed M.g vaccine can be a option?

A very sensitive vaccination and will work for me and all farmers within the global .

Thank you Dr

What about vaccination in flock show seroconversion of about 5-10% and pcr is negative?

The vaccines have different kinetics with serology and PCR
MSH tends to increase in pan species PCR to 100% about 8 weeks post vaccination and stay high for the life of the bird. DIVA PCRs are less sensitive than pan species PCRs in general.
ts-11 initially increases in pan MG PCRs to about 4 week post vaccination peaking at 40% and then decrease again to rise as the birds come into lay and peak higher to nearly 100% PCR. Again DIVA PCRs are less sensitive.
Serology can remain flat negative till the birds are coming into lay and then rising - SErology is useless for monitoring vaccinated flocks - PCR is the only test that will give definitive answers.

So without knowing the timing of your testing it could be normal.
But you could be not vaccinating effectively and here you must consider antibiotic usage, cold chain and application (must be eyedrop), immunosuppression, etc. Are you having any clinical signs?

Mycoplasma has been a problem to layer's farmers. How can eradicate it or prevent (consider to options). Preventing and controlling. How can we help to our best acknowledgment using our professional distinct.

I am a commercial layer farmer , I tried all biosecurity and vaccination however i have not managed to come with good results.

At my farm i do vaccinations and still end up with the problem. what am doing now is only biosecurity with treatment. this is very expensive and makes the enterprise very uneconomical.

Dzugble DaCosta Well I am pretty sure you cant get MSH in Ghana. Just controlling MG with live vaccination gives you less than half of the control of mycoplasmosis needed as if you use antibitoics to control the effects of MS then this will interfere with the live MG vaccine protection.

yes.

are the live Mycoplasma vaccines Mg ts11 is useful in preventing challenges during the peak of production.

is the role of killed vaccine is critical in breeders.

Dr/ Mohamed Hassan Salem Live vaccine is important as is biosecurity. Killed vaccines are not important.
Killed vaccines have been shown to decrease trachael populations, decrease vertical transmission and some other systemic effects. They make a lot of humoral antibody and this can be turned into maternal antibody but humoral antibody has little effect on trachael populations and maternal antibody has not be shown to protect the day old chick from infection. (Levisohn and Kleven suggested that it may increase vertical transmission by keeping vertically infected embryos alive to hatch rather than ending up as late deads).
There are very few studies of live dead combinations and none with any clear positive effects of the combination. Glisson and Kleven study in 1984 should possible interference with F strain only having better protection after challenge than F and killed. Killed vaccines are being phased out by manufacturers. They have been used also to hide the infected status of flocks. The duration of immunity seems to be about to 40 weeks.
Live vaccines can prevent airborne challenge from estabilshing, stop vertical transmission (F strain is often vertically transmitted and causing problems in progeny) and provide protection for the life of the bird.

Why we face some high positive ms titer while it was negative for Mg without affecting the performance..
We use monthly prevention drug program.

Thanks Dr. Chris

Taha Taibeh Antibiotic resistance in the MS? or using erythromycin which has no effect on MS.
and many other reasons.

How are you Mr. Criss Morrow.
I thawed both the MG TS11 vaccine and the MS_H vaccination vaccine produced by Properties simultaneously according to brocure in warm water, temperature of 33-35 degrees Celsius it took 6 minutes from the frozen vaccine to thaw. Is the temperature right, safe or does not damage the vaccine? explanation please.

Aripin Drh This is typical of vaccine that has been stored at -20. You can do this but you cant store the vaccine for more than 4 weeks at -20 and you should not use a domestic freezer that is frost free. Please email me chris.morrow@bioproperties.com.au so I can send you a special thermometer we are making for thawing.
