Response to PRRS

Genetics of Host Response to PRRSGenetics of Pigs Dr. Jack Dekkers, Iowa State University, asks the question "Can the genetics of host pig be used to as part of an integrated strategy to control PRRS?" Dr. Dekkers outlines the current research and what approaches are being developed. Genetic selection for improved host response to PRRSv appears possible and can be an important component in the fight against PRRS.
