Indonesia: Novartis AH conducts seminar on mycoplasma

Novartis Animal Health (Novartis AH) and its Indonesian distributor, Novindo Agritech Hutama (Novindo), recently in Solo, Central Java, successfully held a technical seminar on mycoplasma disease in pigs.

Pig specialist & Southeast Asia technical service of Novartis AH, Metta Makhanon, explained the importance of raising awareness of mycoplasma. One way is to use a Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae vaccine.

But for Mycoplasma hyorhinis and Mycoplasma hyosynoviae, Makhanon said, “The vaccine is not yet available. For that farmers can use antibiotics such as amoxicillin trihydrate and tiamutin 10%.”

Product manager of Novindo, Yana Ariana said that technical seminar on pig diseases are routinely held 2-3 times a year by Novartis AH and Novindo in several locations in Indonesia. This year it has been held in Bali, Medan and Solo, the centres of pig farming in Indonesia.
