Mannheimia haemolytica (previously known as Pasteurella haemolytica) is a weakly hemolytic, gram-negative coccobacillus that is an opportunistic pathogen of cattle, sheep and other ruminants. In stressed, immunocompromised animals, the organism causes a fibrinous, necrotic pneumonia, commonly called "shipping fever". In the United States, economic losses due to shipping fever pneumonia surpass the combined cost of all other diseases of cattle. M. haemolytica, which is a member of the family… CONTINUE READING
