Minimizing the Risks of Infection in Canadian Swine Buildings with Air Filtration Systems
Building and livestock management | Health and biosecurity
Aim / objectives:
Considering that certain Canadian and U.S. farms were infected even though they were with a filtered air system, the project seeks to bring about multidisciplinary activities that provide information about the state of affairs in the field of swine buildings with filtered air in Canada. In addition, it will identify key causation factors and disseminate this information within the industry, together with technical, technological and biosecurity improvements that should be implemented to further minimize the risk of airborne transmission of PRRSV infection and that of other pathogens.
