Abstract

Information on factors possibly associated with the risk of infection with Mycoplasma gallisepticum (MG) or M. synoviae (MS) were collected from nearly 400 layer flocks in California. Factors associated with the probability of flock infection with either MG or MS were identified, and their magnitude was quantified by statistical analysis. More frequent administration of several vaccines was associated with decreased probability of both MG and MS infection of flocks. Also identified were housing or hygiene factors and system of management (i.e., multiple-age status) that could reduce the probability of infection of flocks with mycoplasma. The change in probability of MG infection resulting from modifying certain management factors was examined.
