Herd-level prevalence of Mycoplasma bovis in Swedish dairy herds determined by antibody ELISA and PCR on bulk tank milk and herd characteristics associated with seropositivity

Published: 15 August 2022

On 26 August 2022, a new SLU dataset was published in the Swedish National Data Service's research data catalogue.

Data description

Data from a study of the prevalence of Mycoplasma bovis in bulk tank milk (BTM) and herd characteristics associated with a positive antibody test result in Swedish dairy herds. BTM samples from all Swedish dairy herds (n=3,144) were collected and analyzed with ID Screen antibody ELISA and PCR. Information on herd characteristics was collected from the national Dairy Herd Improvement (DHI) database.
