Abstract

The porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS) virus has adverse affects on the breeding herd and growing pigs. Through field experiences and research, the clinical signs, spread, and diagnosis of PRRS are better understood. Vaccination and improved pig flow are tools available to control PRRS but, the ultimate foundation for controlling, eliminating, and avoiding the virus is better management.
