PRRS control is much more than just vaccination alone. It requires a comprehensive understanding of the disease and the production system under threat, the use of multiple management tools, and a systematic approach to management. Boehringer Ingelheim has developed a systematic platform, known as the PRRS 5-Step Process, that allows veterinarians and producers to co-ordinate and optimise the use of multiple PRRS management tools in order to meet the needs of any production system. The 5-Step Process consists of 5 basic steps: identify desired goals; determine current PRRS status; understand current constraints; develop solutions options; implement and monitor the preferred solution.
