Summary

Taking into account the extra days that pigs affected by AR take to reach slaughter weight, HIPRA, together with SIP Consultors, has developed an ROI calculator in order to find out exactly how much the disease is costing in each case and what the Return On Investment (ROI) of vaccination is. As this article demonstrates, RHINISENG® vaccination gives the farmers a huge ROI, helping them to earn more money.
