The country’s largest producer of pig semen is investigating how blue ear disease has entered its boar stud, where even the air entering the facility is filtered.

Hermitage Genetics in Kilkenny, confirmed that three of its boars were found to have porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV).

The disease was detected in the animals at its quarantined artificial insemination station in Callan following testing. It is the first time blue ear has been found among Hermitage’s pigs. It was founded in 1958.
