Read what our customers have experienced with air filtration and working with Fenced Air and our partners.

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.

The data is fairly self explanatory. Two  of ten filtered herds broke with PRRS, due to non-filter breaches, over a two year period of time ending September 2010.  In the non-filtered control group, 24 of 26 herds broke with PRRS in that same period of time.

We started filtering our sow farms in the spring of 2008 and completed our last farm in the fall of 2010.  In this time we have reduced the frequency of new PRRS introductions significantly as from date of filtration through today.  Since the first farm was filtered, our company wide PSY has improved by nearly 1 PSY led by the farms filtered in 2008 reporting favorable throughput improvement of over 2.0 PSY vs. prior to filtration.  With success documented, and based on the experience to date, we fully expect to see frequency of PRRSv introductions to continue to fall as time passes for all farms.

Our farmer shareholders give positive feedback to our farms every day on the quality of piglets they are receiving now.  They know based on decreased PRRS breaks and increased quality of their piglets that their filter investment has been paid for already.

Through daily air flow monitoring, we have been able to ensure adequate and consistent ventilation to our sows even in hot weather, as well as having an indication of when our pre-filter exchanges should be replaced.  

Our sow farms are at extreme high risk for PRRS virus in northern Iowa and southern Minnesota.  Fenced Air and  Bio-secure Air, Inc. are experienced, efficient, and cost valued.  I personally thank them for contributing to our improved success.
