Mycoplasmosis: Infections of the Genital Organs of Bulls


In Nov. 1966 mycoplasmas were cultured from a pus-filled semen sample of a one-year-old A.I. bull “K”. In subsequent samples pus admixture continued, and mycoplasmas were isolated also in Dec. When the pathogenicity of the strain “K” had been proved, the bull “K”, 14 months old, was purchased for further examination, and two normal twin bulls, 19 months old, were experimentally infected Jan. 10, 1967.
