The NCHC is receiving questions regarding the availability of equine feed and the ability of horse owners to travel to another property to feed their horses. In response to these questions, we are continually monitoring the situation and can report the following. There is specific recognition that animal care, including suppliers of feed and bedding, are considered essential on a federal level. and expected to continue operation. As the caretaker of your livestock, you are also considered essential and are expected to continue your care. To date, that same ruling applies to North Carolina. But states can make additional rules so please visit the NC Department of Agriculture website for more information on COVID-19.
