Development of an attenuated vaccine to control the emerging bovine respiratory pathogen Mycoplasma bovis
Grant number: LP0989620 | Funding period: 2009 - 2012
The project will develop an attenuated vaccine to control the emerging bovine respiratory pathogen Mycoplasma bovis. This pathogen is a major contributor to bovine pneumonia in the feedlot industry and improved control will reduce reliance on antibiotics in cattle production.
