Processing fluids (PF), the serosanguinous fluid recovered from piglet castration and tail docking, were used for porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV) infection assessment. Processing fluid samples from four breed-to-wean herds were compared with standard sampling protocols, demonstrating PRRSV RNA detection in PF at greater frequency than standard schemes.
