Rural Missouri - March 2011 - (Page 26)

Equine enthusiasts beware A disease affecting a wide range of equine species is keeping agriculture specialists busy in Missouri. In January, two horses in northeastern Missouri tested positive for Equine Infectious Anemia (EIA). The animals were both immediately quarantined and humanely euthanized. The contagious, viral disease is most commonly transmitted through horse and deer flies, mosquitoes and gnats. EIA has been known to infect horses, ponies, donkeys and mules, but it does not affect humans. Unfortunately, no vaccines are available to prevent or protect from this disease. Those with questions or concerns about the safety of their livestock should contact the Department of Agriculture by calling 573-751-3377 or visit www.mda.mo.gov. Elk restoration updates For those outdoor enthusiasts who are excited about the reintroduction of elk in Missouri, you can now track the Missouri Department of Conservation’s restoration efforts. By visiting www.mdc.mo.gov and clicking on Elk Restoration Updates, visitors can check out photos and videos of the restoration progress. By subscribing with an e-mail address, you also can get the latest news on the elk project sent to your inbox.

Get your chestnuts roasting Landowners looking to add an alternative crop to their fields are in luck.

It’s the most wonderful time... Missouri’s tax season is upon us. Luckily, those looking to file their taxes at the last minute will have a few extra days.
