Texas livestock and horse owners are being urged to be on the lookout for Animals with excessive salivation loss appetite blisters or lesions around their mouths tongues hooves or sign that their livestock has been affected by the Vesicular Stom atitis virus Vesicular Stomatitis which is usu ally not fatal has been confirmed in horses in New Mexico in three regions n a 15mile area around Las Graces in 30mile areas around Albu querque and Silver City A task force from the Department of Agricul ture Veterinary Services has been dis patched to the state to assist state per with diagnosis and quaranti jiing of infected animals i In Texas the Texas Animal Health Commission TAHC is urging pro Queers to be alert for signs of the infec tion so that immediate action may be taken to halt the spread of the disease which has an incubation period of 28 Jays If compatible symptoms are noticed in any animals in a herd vet erinarians or owners should call their TAHC area office or the headquarters in Austin at 5127190700 or the USDA at 5124825555 An animal health inspector or veterinarian will be sent to the premises to assist in making a diagnosis Affected and exposed ani mals will be quarantined for 30 days after the last lesions heal Vesicular Stomatitis is usually not fatal and has occurred with varying frequency in North and South Ameri ca Typically the infection affects cat tle horses or swine but sheep and goats deer bobcats and raccoons can also become infected Initially an out break may be caused by insect vec tors but then the virus can move from animal to animal by contact with the fluid from ruptured lesions or saliva Persons who handle potentially infect ed animals should wear rubber or latex gloves as they can contract the virus and develop symptoms including fever muscle aches and headache Infected animals develop painful blisters that swell and break leaving raw tissue that cause them to refuse water or food The blisters may also appear around the top of the hooves resulting in temporary lameness Severe weight loss accompanies the infection and in dairy cattle a dra matic drop in milk production occurs Affected animals will usually recover in about two weeks from the said Dr Max Coats state epi demiologist for the TAHC There is no specific treatment or cure except preventing a secondary infection where the blisters have A major concern about the virus is that the sign in cattle sheep and swine are similar to the dangerous foreign animal infection footandmouth dis ease Only laboratory tests can deter mine which virus has infected the ani mal We are always on guard against foreign animal diseases and thats why it is very important to know which dis ease has affected a said Dr Coats In New Mexico state and federa personnel are investigating 37 report of affected animals The team is advis ing livestock owners to avoid congre gating animals to prevent the spread of infection A number of horse shows rodeos and livestock exhibitions in southern New Mexico have been can celed Animals with any Vesicular Stom atitis symptoms should not be moved from the premises as this could spread disease to other farms and ranches The owners or veterinarians should call the TAHC or USDA immediately for diagnostic said Dr Coats To aid in preventing infection flies should be controlled and persons should remember to use rubber gloves if they handle any animals that appear to be Rodeo Days Old Timers June 17th Team Roping Barrel Racing 95 Each ticket good for either 1 wagon or horse ride 95 Rodeo 8pm Concession Stand

Texas Department of Agriculture imay soon be removed from the books Ithanks to an unprecedented sunset teview Agriculture Commissioner Rick Per iry believes over regulation is a threat to economic health of Texas and Jannounced plans for a sunset review of all TDA regulations in an attempt to Remove any that are meaningless or outdated On Aug the hundreds of set by the TDA will expire Before then the TDA will do a com plete review of each determining if it I is still useful if it needs modifying or if it is fine the way it is Only the ones which protect the public and nat ural resources in the least intrusive manner possible will be kept The pub lie will also have a say in the future of the regulations The TDA will listen to I public comment on the regulations I before any proposed changes or repeals are made Perry said We will debate discuss and thor oughly dissect them and in the end i produce a better more reasonable and I more efficient regulatory I said Perry Comal County Extension Agent Joe Taylor said several regulations are nec essary to guarantee the safety of the general public and he would not want to see them removed However he said Texans are overregulated and cer tain agricultural rules cannot be the same for people all over the state because there is too much diversity It does need to be updated he said Some of the things we were doing in the 70s are probably still on the books and arent needed Many of these regulations seem to serve no real purpose One such exam ple is a TDA requirement for butter and margarine that forces packagers to produce a certain size of product The current rule which TDA is con sidering eliminating requires that these products be sold in standard sizes of a quarter pound half a pound a pound one and a half pounds or 24 ounces This rule does not allow the producer to follow consumer preferences which may be for smaller sizes Perry said this is only one example and he expects to find many more during the review In the end all these little minor paperwork annoyances add up in a big way to hinder business and stifle eco nomic activity and competitiveness And thats why unworkable regula tions must be rooted said
