CANADA - At a recent county pork producer meeting, the Ontario Swine Health Advisory Board (OSHAB) gave an excellent presentation on the PPRS project that is running in Ontario.

PRRS is the number one profit robber which can cause large production and financial losses on any size pig operation.

Currently there is no magic bullet or special fix to eradicate this virus. The Ontario pork industry through the Ontario Pork Industry Council (OPIC) and OSHAB has come together to look at ways to help solve the PRRS problem. Individual Ontario producers can help move this project along by signing up for the database mapping. This spring several producer groups have committed to sign on to the project. They have realized that the cost of living with PRRS is not a bankable solution in their operation.

For more information on how you can help with the PRRS project please contact Dr Jane Carpenter at [email protected] (519) 767-8700 or talk to your veterinarian.
