Update on PRRS Activity in MN

The recent number of outbreaks of PRRS reported in the N212 region of Minnesota has broken the epidemic threshold. This is the only area in the Midwest experiencing outbreaks of this magnitude at this time. Eight unique PRRS viruses have been sequenced since last November and all but one of them appear to be unrelated to any previous area isolate.

Reminder for producers to be diligent about biosecurity practices. Additionally continually monitor herd health and work closely with your veterinarian to manage any health challenges, including PRRS. Remember to communicate with neighboring producers and others involved in your production flow to help minimize the spread of PRRS and other health challenges.
