We the Committee of the Southern Racing Federation Inc. Rota Virus Up date
Have been clear since the beginning that we're only here to look at the facts and get to the truth-free from propaganda,hype or agenda. We have not nor will we place on our web page unsubstantiated raves nor post any material which has not been proven which only creates fear and anxiety
We have come to the conclusion that the Rota Virus is at the moment unstopable And will infect every loft in Australia.I.E. it has traveled from West Australia to the East Coast (Brisbane/Sydney/Melbourne/) and is now being found in some country towns. The Experts are as confused as we are as to the method of spread or the original source.
All the experts agree on one thing the birds in a well maintained loft not overstocked & kept in a healthy state. Will suffer less deaths. When the Virus enters the loft birds must be hydrated as much as possible.
The Virus when entering the loft will be very quick to take control killing within 3/4 days & will leave almost as quickly 6/7 days the birds then will very quickly recover their appetite & within 2 weeks will display a willingness to work as though they had only caught a cold supprising most of their owners.

Warning Anybody tossing with race bird liberations from this date on 23/7/2014It has come to the committees attention over recent weeks that there are some flyers that are intent in the disruption of our liberations by liberating toss birds at the same time from our liberation points.This action is viewed very seriously by your board as we have been entrusted by our members to ensure the safe and uninterupted liberation of our scheduled races.We have had to take unusual steps to avoid these irresponsible flyers and have been successful in the main but we can see the problem escalating. The perpetrators have been from our federation and other federations.We have no objections to flyers liberating 30 mins befor or 30 mins after but in no circumstances will we tolerate liberation at the same time.
The liberation of toss pigeons which by definition do not have the experience or race fitness have a tendency to mill around at the race point and hold the competition birds back which result in excessive losses.We put a lot of effort in making sure that our members race pigeons have every opportunity and are not distracted. I also realise that this action is hard to stamp out with some pigeon flyers but we will try our hardest.
The following rules are to apply from this date forward.
(1) Any SRPF member proven to have liberated toss pigeons at our scheduled race point at the same time will be BANNED from participating with the SRPF for a minimum of 2 YEARS. This to include any name from their current address. Members found to be sending birds with other flyers not SRPF members will be just as liable.
(2) Any Identified Flyer belonging to any other Federation will be BANNED from any participation in the SRPF or any race organised by the SRPF.This to include any name at their current address.
It is hoped that every member will understand the seriousness the Board veiws this issue.
on behalf of the Board Southern Racing Pigeon Federation Inc.
