Follicular fluid samples from abattoir-obtained pig ovaries were monitored by polymerase chain reaction for viral pathogens known to cause reproductive failure, including porcine parvovirus, porcine circovirus, porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus, bovine viral diarrhea virus, and border disease virus. Six of 49 animals tested were positive for porcine parvovirus.
