[RC] Botulism - Tom Sites

RC has such a wealth of information in the Archives on Botulism, my friends who just lost a foal would have benefited from knowing.  It's a horrible death, and costly to treat with a small chance of survival and prevention is so cheap.
 
Living in an area where 'litter' (chicken and turkey) is used as a fertilizer on the fields where the hay is made, and in that litter is dead carcasses that create the botulism toxins, its something i just discovered and my friends did, the hard way. 
 
Shazamm,  something else to have to worry about.  The hay we feed.ts
