PRRS Eradication: A dream or missed opportunity?

23-Sep-2009 (10 years 2 months 18 days ago)

One thing that remains certain is PRRS virus continually finds ways to circumvent our best bio-management efforts. PRRS marches on in a ceaseless continuum of antigenic change making current vaccines and other control techniques of limited value.
