More than 25 years after its appearance, PRRS continues to be the most challenging and costly disease affecting pig production. HIPRA has the vaccine, the diagnostics, the knowledge and experience in order to provide the best advice to our clients.
Monitoring is a basic tool for the complete control of disease. The different analytical and diagnostic techniques provide information on the situation on the farm at all times and this means that we will have the necessary information for establishing the appropriate control measures.
A PRRS control program cannot be conceived without implementing biosecurity measures. Whilst external biosecurity focuses on exclusion (not allowing it to enter) internal biosecurity focuses on containment (not allowing it to move).
The entrance of gilts is today still one of the main causes of destabilisation of PRRS in swine farms and a source of the entrance of new PRRS virus strains. Therefore, it is crucial to check and ensure that protocols for the entrance of future breeders are being performed correctly in order to succeed in the fight against the disease.
