Abstract:
Infections of respiratory tract were one of the main problems in sheep and goats farming. Causing production and economic losses to farmers. Mycoplasma is one of etiological agent. Among all species, not only Mycoplasma mycoides cluster group but also non cluster organisms play important role in production of disease. In the present study a total of 188 Mycoplasma suspected samples, 95 (44 nasal swabs, 49 lung tissues and 2 pleural fluids) from sheep and 93 (56 nasal swabs, 33 lung tissues and 4 pleural fluids) from goats were collected. Molecular detection of genus Mycoplasma, Mycoplasma ovipneumoniae and Mycoplasma agalactiae was carried out by PCR targeting 16SrRNA yielding 280 bp, 361 bp and 360 bp product. The overall incidence of genus Mycoplasma was found to be 68.42% in sheep and 55.91% in goats. The overall incidence of Mycoplasma ovipneumoniae and Mycoplasma agalactiae was found to be 32.63% & 12.63% in sheep and17.2% &13.97% in goats.
