Eric Gingerich your comments about MS are certainly the current view in the USA (in states without turkeys) but I think MS is causing more subtle losses in the US egg industry. F strain and MS in the US avain respiratory background are not causing clinical problems unlike many other places in thre world (TRT, respiratory virus control etc). But sublinically? Certainly F strain in the US was esti ...

Eric Gingerich thank you. I should emphasis that phasing out mycoplasma antibiotic prophylaxis is at different stages around the world and also varies in countries between table egg production and broiler meat production. So Australia is probably the most advanced from having the mycoplasma vaccines (including MS) over 25 years, The US, Argentina and UK especially poultry meat production are v ...

PHONGTHEP MORAWAN mycoplasma freedom is only possible when you have goood underlying biosecurity - this includes farm siteing and isolation - very difficult in the short term (but some gains can be made in the medium term with rearing away from multiage sites. Live mycoplasma vaccination is the other way of controlling mycoplasma infections. Simply you need the same strategy for MG and MS. No us ...

Caecal droppings (yellow pasty mucoid droppings) in layers can be very common, caused by Brachyspira infections. We found them to be present in most free-range flocks, causing 20% drop in production and an additional 10% mortality if untreated. In cage sheds, flies seemed to be important in the transmission of the infection - faeces - flies - feed - and in many tropical countries they have open-si ...

Brachyspira infection causes few signs except egg production drop and diarrhoea and it can respond to acidification of the water (or antibiotics)Get a pig lab to help you diagnose it - they deal with it every day.

We have been examining vaccinated flocks by DIVA PCR and culture recently in Asia. Here we can not find the MG and MS live vaccines in flocks that have had anti-mycoplasmal antibiotics. We typically find field strains (we suspect they are resistant to antibiotics). The vaccine strains are sensitive to all anti-mycoplasmal antibiotics (even quinolones like enrofloxacin) even if local field strains ...
