Abstract

Infection with transmissible gastroenteritis virus (TGEV) was present in some pigs on arrival at a feeder pig farm and was well established three weeks later. TGE infection preceded Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae infection, which was not detected until three weeks after arrival. Severe lesions of enzootic pneumonia were observed at the end of the fattening period.
