Horse Disease: At Least 3 Cedar Valley Horses Quarantined

Black Hawk County (KWWL) - One Cedar Valley horse breeder has 3 horses under quarantine while they await test results for Contagious Equine Metritis (CEM), but no horses in Iowa have yet been tested positive.

The USDA says that Iowa horses may have been exposed to CEM after discovering the infection in some Kentucky and Indiana stallions.  CEM is transmitted during breeding and can cause temporary infertility.
