Goats on two zero grazed farms carrying 1621 animals with a history of contagious caprine pleuropneumonia were subjected to a vaccine trial with an inactivated mycoplasma F38 vaccine. The results indicated that the vaccine produced an immune response, that it was very effective in reducing morbidity and mortality rates, and that a booster dose one month after the first dose of vaccine gave extra protection.
