MPI together with DairyNZ and Beef + Lamb New Zealand, the Government Industry Agreement (GIA) partners in Mycoplasma bovis (M. bovis) eradication, are looking to improve the on-going surveillance of (M. bovis) to help achieve its eradication and/or proof of freedom. Optimisation of the existing diagnostic approach from sampling to testing will ideally increase diagnostic sensitivity, and improve the testing strategy through improved sampling, faster testing, interpretation and reporting.
