Farmers’ Willingness to Pay for a Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome (PRRS) Vaccine in Thua Thien Hue Province, Vietnam

Vietnam is a major pork producing country, but the livelihood of pig farmers is threatened by the pig disease Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS). Although vaccination is the most practical method of choice for PRRS control, the vaccination percentage is very low in Vietnam. To help inform PRRS vaccine development and policy, our research employed the choice experiment method to assess pig farmers’ attitudes toward and willingness to pay (WTP) for a PRRS vaccine. The results found a high positive WTP value for the PRRS vaccination program in Vietnam. This study provides insight into the possibility of increasing the PRRS vaccination percentages.
