Canada launches CEM investigation, 4th stallion infected - Full Article

January 1, 2009

Another Kentucky stallion has been found to be infected with contagious equine metritis as the outbreak extends its tentacles north into Canada.

Canada has confirmed that semen from one of the infected stallions was imported into the country and it has launched an inquiry.

In Kentucky, four stallions - three quarter horses and one paint - have been confirmed infected with the venereal disease.

Each of the four stallions stood the 2008 season at a breeding facility in Woodford County that specialises in stallion collection for artificial insemination.

Three of the four infected stallions remain at the original premises with the fourth at another Woodford County address.
