Thanks to our mates at Queensland breeders we can bring you the latest on the breeding scene.
The TBA wishes to draw your attention to a serious mosquito borne viral infection called Flavivirus which is prevalent in NSW, Victoria and South Australia following the particularly wet spring and summer.
An infected horse will become uncoordinated and barely be able to stand. Most horses with clinical signs will recover over several weeks with proper care but there is a worrying 10% mortality rate.
The current situation is summarized by the NSW Department of Primary Industries at the link below.
The Australian Racing Board has released amendments to the rules of racing.
The changes cover Infectious Diseases, Aged horses, Wrong horse on track, Apprentice claims, Creatinine, Wording of AR178D re evidentiary value of laboratory certifications, Out-of competition testing, Suspension of penalties and Prohibited Substances.
If you are interested in the details, please contact me via info@queenslandbreeders.com.au and I will forward you a copy of the document.

TBQA members have the chance to purchase a special supplement of the Australian Veterinary Journal (AVJ) – the definitive story of the equine influenza (EI) outbreak in Australia.
Produced as a full-colour glossy journal, with more than 50 articles, it covers all aspects of the 2007 EI outbreak. For more details, go to the draft contents page.
The supplement will provide descriptions of the disease, epidemiology within the naïve population, laboratory aspects for prompt diagnosis and proof of freedom, control measures applied, how the vaccine was deployed and its impact on the outbreak, impacts on the various sectors of the equine industry in Australia, and measures to demonstrate proof of freedom.
It is a report of large, real-time highly infectious field outbreak, and is one of the few times in the world where a highly infectious organism occurred in a naïve population, was controlled with the assistance of vaccination, resulting in elimination of the disease and the country regaining freedom. This has implications for other diseases of international importance such as classical swine fever or foot-and-mouth disease.
