Our herd is a part of the ADGA Plus program, which combines Linear Appraisal, DHIR, and
CAE, CL, Johne’s, Q-Fever, & Brucella: See our test results here. Our herd has tested NEGATIVE (that’s good) for the following diseases: CAE (Caprine Arthritis Encephalitis virus), CL (Caseous lymphadenitis), Johne’s Disease (Paratuberculosis), Q-Fever, and Brucella. We test annually for CAE. In addition to Negative test results, our herd is and always has been abscess free, and we have never had any signs of Johne’s. Our herd is Closed and our animals do not leave the property unless they require emergency care of a DVM or I feel they require chiropractic care and those professionals (DVM or chiropractor) are not available for a Farm Call. We do not allow visitors to access to our pasture/barn area.
Our entire herd is G6S Normal, either by direct blood test (through TVMDL on 06/09/2011; & October/November 2013 for Carolina and Misha) or by parentage.
