artifact description
An effective disease control program is extremely important to maintain the health and usefulness of a horse. A disease control program is just part of a total management scheme of proper health, nutrition, reproduction, growth and performance. A healthy, disease- free horse will have the opportunity to maximize its genetic potential or simply carry the horse owner on a Sunday afternoon pleasure ride. This fact sheet will provide Tennessee horse owners information about diseases and their control.
