Financial Implications of Installing Air Filtration Systems to Prevent PRRSV Infection in Large Sow Herds

Using modelling, researchers in the US found that the installation of air filters to pig houses to keep out the porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS) virus could result in almost 6,000 more pigs being produced from a 3,000-sow herd. This additional output alone led them to calculate a pay-back period of around five to seven years for the investment.
