To find an effective prevention method for porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS), three indices from experimental and control group pigs, namely, routine blood index, serum biochemical indicators, and conventional cell factor contents of serum, are inspected. The prevention and treatment of PRRS effect are evaluated, feeding pigs with Daitai. Results show that traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) Daitai can significantly improve the nonspecific immunity of pigs.
