Introduction Porcine respiratory disease complex (PRDC) is a multifactorial disease resulting from the interaction of different infectious agents, management and environmental conditions, and is considered a major health concern. Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae (Mhyo) and Porcine Circovirus type 2 (PCV2) are among...
Sow loss can cause psychological harm to workers and also results in loss of profits. Sow longevity is decreasing even with the new genetic advancements and a switch to group housing. A survey is being done on reasons for...
Abstract Little is known about how co-infections and genotype dynamics affect Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae infection in fattening pigs. This study was aimed at assessing the role of co-infections in M. hyopneumoniae outbreaks, their influence on the presence of M. hyopneumoniae genotypes...
