ABSTRACT
The article discusses a research about the elimination of porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV) from a boar stud and a breeding farm. Samples of semen and serum from boars were tested for antibodies to PRRSV. A three-step elimination program was established on the breeding farm. Research showed that both the stud and the breeding farm remained negative over at least one parity cycle.
