Evaluation of two vaccination programs against PRRS virus, PCV2 and Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae in a swine production system in Mexico

The economic benefit of 3FLEX in comparison to the identical but separately administered vaccines can at least partly be assigned to the reduction of stress caused by multiple handling and injections.

Nowadays swine farms in México are facing challenges by multiple agents. Within the Porcine Respiratory Disease Complex (PRDC), 3 agents of elevated prevalence worldwide can be highlighted; the Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome Virus (PRRSv), Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae and Porcine Circovirus type 2. PRDC pathogens are diagnosed in the field by Veterinarians and control programs are established through vaccines, management interventions and strategic medications. The objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of 2 vaccination protocols under similar field conditions.
