New EVA Requirements for Stallion Owners
RSS Feeds Friday, February 12, 2010
Dear Stallion Owner:

On November 30, 2006 the New Mexico Livestock Board adopted emergency rules regarding Equine Viral Arteritis (EVA). All commercial breeding stallions shall be tested for EVA prior to use as a breeding stallion or collection for artificial insemination.
According to the 2009 Questionnaire, the majority of our members feel that all breeding stallions need to be tested and vaccinated for EVA. It was decided at our October 7, 2009 Board of Trustees meeting that it is mandatory for ALL ACTIVE STALLIONS registered with the New Mexico Horse Breeders Association starting with the 2010 breeding season be tested serologically negative for EVA and vaccinated for EVA within 10 days of the negative test. All stallions testing negative are required to be vaccinated 30 days prior to the breeding season. Those stallions that have already been tested and vaccinated for EVA are required to get an annual booster shot 30 days prior to the breeding season.

Please have your veterinarian complete the EVA Stallion Certification or Booster report enclosed and return in the self addressed envelope prior to January 15, 2010. This disease is manageable and can be prevented through a vaccination program. If you have any questions, the EVA regulations are on the website www.nmhorsebreeders.com . You may also phone the office for a copy of the regulations.

If we do not receive the EVA Stallion Certification form back in a timely manner, your stallion will be marked as inactive in our stallion registry and there will be a $200.00 reactivation fee.

We ask for and thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Anna Fay Davis Executive Director NMHBA
