Regional Strategies to Control Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome (PRRS), a Non-Reportable, Endemic Swine Disease in the US

Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS) is an endemic disease that imposes a large economic damage on the US swine industry. Nonetheless, there is no official control framework for PRRS, so producers rely on voluntary regional control programs (RCPs) for its mitigation. Despite efforts to control PRRS, it continues to affect a large number of farms every year. Using information shared by a specific RCP (RCP-N212), this research project focused on important aspects of PRRS dynamics within an RCP, including effects of the disease on production, as well as strategies adopted by producers to control its spread.
