• Non-Moraxella organisms are associated with infectious bovine keratoconjunctivitis (IBK).
• Mycoplasma bovoculi can cause conjunctivitis and has a potential role in IBK pathogenesis.
• Other Non-Mycoplasma agents can cause disease that resembles IBK but is clinically different.
• Genomics and molecular technology are advancing research in this area.
• Classification and determination of pathogenesis potential of these organisms may be better understood through metagenomics and whole genome sequencing.
