A research project has determined that it probably isn't a virus or bacteria (a biological agent) that links the Eastern tent caterpillar (ETC) to mare reproductive loss syndrome (MRLS).
Finding a way to rid Central Kentucky horse farms of Eastern Tent Caterpillars is the goal of a new $50,000 study financed by the Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation.
The University of Kentucky issued an advisory Friday regarding the eastern tent caterpillar, which is still regarded as a primary risk factor associated with mare reproductive lose syndrome.
