Comparative survival of different strains of porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus 

This is our Friday rubric: every week a new Science Page from the Bob Morrison’s Swine Health Monitoring Project. The previous editions of the science page are available on our website.

In today’s Science Page, Angie Quinonez and Sagar Goyal of the University of Minnesota investigate the survival of different PRRSV strains at different temperatures.
