UMaine Extension Educator in Report on Horses’ Deaths

University of Maine Cooperative Extension educator Richard Brzozowski was interviewed for a Central Maine Morning Sentinel report about horses that died of botulism on a farm in southern Maine. Brzozowski discussed the sensitive stomachs of horses, which may be impacted by impurities in baleage, the partially dried forage in large round bales that is then wrapped in plastic, which inspectors say might be to blame in the horses’ deaths. The sealed bales can create conditions for the botulism bacteria to grow.
