Economic Impact of Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome (PRRS) on Nursery and Grower-Finisher Production in Ontario

Researchers at the University of Guelph in Canada have calculated the total cost associated with PRRS outbreaks in Ontario - based on the cost of mortality and impaired performance - to be up to C$4 million annually or C$4.50 per nursery pig and C$1.87 per grower-finisher pig in the year following an outbreak. The data were presented at the 33rd Centralia Swine Research Update in January 2014.
