this article was on racenet but when i checked again it was gone but after a bit of searching i found it have a read i found it funny, maybe racenet had to take it off because the DPI are embarrassed that the virus has got past them at a DPI farm.
IF i have read it wrong and this farm was not run by nsw, DPI i am sorry.
Several horses at the Elizabeth Macarthur Agricultural Institute Belgenny Farm near Camden have been confirmed with the disease despite biosecurity measures being followed.
Belgenny Farm has 11 horses, all of which have been moved into a higher-level quarantine area away from public access.
The source of the infection has not been traced, a DPI spokeswoman said.
"Belgenny Farm is a public facility and we believe that is how it may have come in but that is not certain," the spokeswoman said.
"We will be investigating the source and continue to urge people to observe biosecurity measures when coming into contact with horses."
The public and visitors are banned from approaching any horses located within the bounds of facility.
The site is also a popular function centre but there should be no disruptions with visitor restrictions applying to the farm area only.
The centre had been due to conduct a course in horse care and handling later this month.
