CNFR Expects No Delays Associated With EHV-1 [AUDIO]

After the threat of EHV-1 postponed a high school rodeo last week, there have been some real concerns as to the effects the recent outbreak would have on the CNFR. And with over 450 competitors and some 700 horse traveling to Casper for the event, every precaution has been explored, including the requirement of a 72 hour health certificate and constant monitoring of the horses temperature.

EHV-1 is a serious equine disease with an incubation period of two to 10 days that can cause respiratory and neurological disease as well as death. It is usually spread through horse-to-horse contact, but can also be transmitted through the air, contaminated equipment, clothing and hands. EHV-1 is not transmissible to humans.

NIRA Commisioner Roger Walters joined us to talk about the disease and what the CNFR is doing to prevent it”s affecting the event.
