Mycoplasma gallisepticum (MG) is a major health, welfare and economic challenge for commercial egg layer operations because biosecurity and prevention programs often fail. The current consensus is that existing prevention tools need to work together within a strategic framework to improve MG control. In this webinar, our guest speaker, Dr. Naola Ferguson, shares the findings from a recent study exploring the benefits of a new MG prevention protocol combining live and inactivated MG vaccines to reduce mycoplasma replication and achieve stronger protection.
