The PRRS-Resistant Pig is built on years of groundbreaking research. Learn more below. 


Study shows preventing. PRRS could dramatically reduce demand for antibiotic use:

Iowa State University’s recent study highlights a significant link between preventing PRRS and
reducing antibiotic use in pork production.

PIC has bred a sizable amount of PRRS-Resistant Pigs.


The National Pork Board (NPB) and PIC have partnered to create a framework that demonstrates how genetic improvements support sustainable pork production and corporate climate pledges, and create value through greenhouse gas emission reductions.
