Other Airborne Viruses

Due to the overwhelming impact of PRRS, PRRS was the first target of studies to understand and confirm the ability for pathogens to move through the air from herd to herd and for air filtration to be a integral method of prevention from introduction to a herd.

Testing is also confirming that air filtration will prevent the introduction of other airborne pathogens such as Mycoplasma Hyopneumoniae (M hyo) and Influenze (SIV) providing further layers of protection from potential health challenges.

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.
