Infection dynamics and incidence of wild-type PRRS virus in growing pigs

This new publication from the Torremorell’s lab is focusing on growing pig herds in the Midwest and how wild-type PRRS virus can spread among them. The full publication is available on the journal’s website.

Highlights

  • Wild-type PRRSV infections in growing pigs are common and more prevalent towards the middle to end of the growing phase.
  • Site-level surveillance is useful to understand PRRSV infections in vaccinated pigs.
  • Biosecurity practices in growing pig sites are key to prevent lateral infections.
