Mycoplasma agalactiae: The Sole Cause of Classical Contagious Agalactia?

A recent commentary by Migliore at al. (2021) recommends that contagious agalactia (CA) should only be diagnosed and confirmed when M. agalactiae is detected either by isolation or molecular methods. The other three mycoplasmas classically associated with CA (M. mycoides subsp. capri, M. capricolum subsp. capricolum and M. putrefaciens) should removed from the OIE Manual […]
