This year's virus is the Indiana strain of Vesicular Stomatitis (VSV), last seen in 1998 in Colorado. Earlier outbreaks in 2004/2005 and 2014/2015 were the New Jersey strain of VSV. This is a reportable disease, please notify us immediately of any suspected cases. Remember that horses, cattle, swine, alpacas, llamas and goats can be affected. This is an especially important time of year to be vigilant with the county fair underway!
