PRRS monitoring

GFS takes a range of measures to ensure that PRRS is not suspected at its boar stations. The health concept is made up of measures before housing of the pigs in GFS stations and monitoring of the GFS boar stock. The PRRS monitoring programme includes an intensive examination schedule (monitoring measures) and certain acute measures. The monitoring measures start in the breeding barn and continue in the GFS quarantine and stations.

 


Certification that PRRS is not suspected

Certification that PRRS is not suspected is issued by the health services of the Chambers of Agriculture every six months after careful testing. 

The “certification that PRRS is not suspected” is available to see here for all GFS boar stations:

 


PRRS Monitoring Juli 13

To be awarded a certification that PRRS is not suspected, GFS takes part in “voluntary procedures for PRRS monitoring in swine stocks”. It has been developed by the Swine Health Services (SGDs) in Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Austria and Switzerland and is mutually recognised. All blood sample results are passed on to the responsible SGD in good time every months. At half-yearly intervals, an SGD vet also visits the station and monitors boar health and biosecurity. If everything is okay, the certificate is extended by another six months.
