PRRS: Strategies to keep it at bay
For more than 20 years, porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome has taken a financial toll on individual producers as well as the pork industry as a whole. Today, it costs the industry $664 million a year to live with PRRS. Translate that to a daily cost and it adds up to $1.8 million.
Over those 20 years, research has told us much about tackling this virus. There are now nearly two dozen PRRS Area Regional Control and Elimination projects underway across the United States providing even more information.
New answers are surfacing about virus transmission and biosecurity measures that can help you keep PRRS out of your herd. Dr. Scott Dee will present insights into what we’ve learned and options for implementing a systematic program to your operation.
