GLOBAL - To help vets and producers establish a strong monitoring programme, veterinary pharmaceutical company, HIPRA has issued the second of a series of educational videos.

In order to control the disease, it is essential to establish a monitoring programme including different analytical and diagnostic techniques to provide information on the situation on the farm at all times.

A robust monitoring programme will provide the necessary information to establish the epidemiological status of the farm and the appropriate control measures to be taken.

The five minute long video gives a step by step guide to the different monitoring tools available to be able to put in place the correct and effective control measures.

When the status of the farm has been established – either PRRS positive unstable, PRRS positive stable or PRRS provisional negative stable or negative stable - the appropriate control measures and interventions can be put in place.

With this new tool HIPRA is consolidating its commitment to PRRS control and reinforcing its positioning as reference in prevention for Animal Health.
