For over six years, Boehringer Ingelheim Vertmedica, Inc. (BIVI) has promoted coordinated efforts to minimize risk and manage PRRS and other diseases within an identified area.  Many of the key learnings gained from area regional control (ARC) programs targeted at PRRS virus are now being used to help producers manage, monitor and share information on other swine diseases, including porcine epidemic diarrhea (PED) and influenza.

BIVI continues to provide a wide variety of support to meet the needs of producers and the ARC programs as they evolve, and helps facilitate the sharing of disease information regularly at industry meetings.
