EFFECT OF DIFFERENT GILT VACCINATION SCHEDULES ON COLONIZATION BY MYCOPLASMA HYOPNEUMONIAE DURING THE GILT ACCLIMATION PERIOD.

Gilts are considered key in Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae (Mhyo) transmission. Vaccination during gilt acclimation may decrease shedding at farrowing, piglet colonization and, together with piglet vaccination, to diminish the impact of respiratory problems in...
