Introduction to the 5-Step Process

With more than 20 years of experience working with universities, research centres, veterinarians, and producers, Boehringer Ingelheim has developed a systematic platform, known as the PRRS 5-Step Process, that effectively meets the challenges of PRRS control.

The 5-Step Process allows veterinarians and producers to co-ordinate and optimise the use of multiple management tools, and in so doing makes PRRS control simpler and more effective.

The 5-Step Process consolidates PRRS control in pig farms, large production systems, and even geographical areas, and can be tailored to meet the needs of any production system. The process can be repeated until all goals have been achieved.
