Equine Infectious Anemia (EIA)
The Moose Jaw Exhibition Company Limited held a board meeting Wednesday, March 23, 2016. On the agenda was the topic of the EIA that was brought forward from the SHF AGM held in Swift Current on Saturday, March 12, 2016.
There was an extensive discussion held by the Board members of The Moose Jaw Exhibition Company in regards to this matter; ranging from MJ Ex Co becoming a testing facility to rental & Company shows requiring the test to be done. During the discussion, it was stated that our Board members felt there was a lack of communication between Saskatchewan Horse Federation, facility holders and user groups prior to attempting to implement any type of testing. After much debate by the MJ Ex Co Board members, a unanimous motion was passed stating:
“The Moose Jaw Exhibition Company does not require mandatory Coggins testing.”
We do look forward to working with SHF in the future in regards to all aspects of the equine industry.
