Businesses- that utilise horses as a core tool of their business need accurate, up to date records of horse movements on and off their premises as part of their biosecurity plan. Essential information such as vaccination status for diseases such as Hendra Virus, Tetanus and Strangles will be accessible. Drenching status, Dental History and Farrier visits can also be recorded along with any other treatments that have been administered to a particular horse.
Business Managers- are able to keep track of horse numbers and the horse vaccination status of horses on their premises. Reports can be generated at any point in time to display this information.
Horse Owners- Relevant individual horse information is accessible at their fingertips. In the future, horse events will require microchip numbers and vaccination status information to allow participation in horse events. This information will be easily accessible through the Horse Records website. Reminders can also be generated to ensure vaccination status is kept up to date.
DPI- in the (unlikely) event of either a Hendra Virus or Exotic Disease outbreak, horse traceability and identification of dangerous contacts will be critical information for the investigation. For a disease such as Hendra Virus, knowing the vaccination status of all horses on a premises will remove the need for extended quarantine periods at suspect facilities, if all the horses are up to date with their vaccinations.
