PRRS Filtering Options

PRRS Filtering Options

Many boar studs and sow farms have installed filtration systems to reduce the airborne transmission of porcine reproductive and respiratory (PRRS) virus. Interest in filtering nurseries, grow-finish and wean-to-finish facilities is growing, especially in swine-dense areas. Steve Pohl, South Dakota State University, provides an overview of air filtration systems [3] in the April 2012 issue of National Hog Farmer. [4]
