Mastitis Due to Mycoplasma bovis Insights

Cows infected with mycoplasma spread the infection both
vertically through milk and horizontally to other animals
through aerosols, direct contact, milking systems or objects
contaminated with the infectious organisms (fomites) such
as bedding, water or feed. In their article, Raúl Vázquez,
Global Dairy Technical Services Manager and Rinse Jan
Boersma, Global Marketing Director Dairy Cattle for
Bayer Animal Health, will explain what mycoplasmas are,
why they are a problem, and what to do when mycoplasma
is suspected or diagnosed.
