How It Was Created

For over ten years, the PRRS virus has been the single largest health challenge facing swine producers.  The losses associated with an infection event and the allocation resources to managing the prevention of PRRS are staggering.

Measures taken to prevent the introduction of PRRS ranges from farm bio-security protocols, strategies to create or sustain immunity within the herds (i.e. vaccination or serum strategies), and filtration.

For many years, the movement of PRRS had been a question that was only answered by theory.  Today, the leading veterinarians and scientist have confirmed the ability for this virus to move with people and animals, equipment and supplies, exist in manure, and travel through the air.

There continues to be a lack of a single solution contributing to prevention of PRRS and other airborne virus introductions on farms.  Rather, many strategies must work seamlessly to prevent such introductions.

Air filtration, complimented by a comprehensive bio-security plan, is your only defense to reducing risk of transmission of virus through the air.
 

What the experts are saying…

Our farm was breaking with a new PRRS strain more than 1 time per year.  In many cases, the virus could be traced to local area finishing sites.  In the summer of 2008 we filtered our farm.  Our working lives have changed completely since.  We can focus our time on husbandry instead of mortality hauling.  The air quality for all of us is better also.  We are no longer living in fear each day of the health status of our neighboring producers.
