    Hi Everybody! It’s been a good few years since I’ve been around. I mainly just lurk around now. ;) We haven’t had many bumps in the road thankfully, however, I am finding myself in an impending crap storm with CAE+ goats. I need a advice and education. Background: MSU just put down one of my...

    Hi all... I'm fairly new to goats (a year in). I have 2 adult nigerians, and just got a new doeling to add to the herd (from a clean CAE/CL/J tested closed herd), but have kept her separate from my other 2 because they have never been tested and I'm learning that's something I should have...

    hello everyone! I don’t know much about CAE, for I’ve never had it with our herd. I’ve seen lots of post of people asking if the herd is CAE TESTED, which all of our goats are clean and tested. What exactly is CAE? If a female goat is pos for CAE, will it carry on to the kidds? Can CAE be...

    Hello, all! Because I'm a wimp, I have someone else disbud my goat kids. Today I was wondering about the possibility of passing disease through the iron from kid to kid. When I googled it, it was listed as a possible secondary method of CAE infection, which has me a little nervous. At the same...

    OK. I just tested my does - no diseases here. Huzzah! However, we are quite seriously considering breeding our does with a buck (or maybe 2 bucks) that are housed with another buck who is CAE positive. The other farm and I share the same vet. He (the vet) is of the conviction that CAE...

    Hey, my very good freind just found out her goats have CAE. They are like dogs to her, so I know culling is out of the question. Anyways, she comes to our house and helps me with goats all the time, and I was wondering if this would be a problem? Will her being in contact with her goats and them...

    I have a goat who is a first freshener and she's got some really crazy things going on with her udder. I'm a complete newbie, so I'll start from the beginning: This doe developed a small, but full looking udder that was hard as a rock before she was ever exposed to a buck. I was told this was...
  8. Dairy Diaries
    Hello All, I've posted my query below to the Dairy Goat Forum and wanted to post here as well as I've been sponging up so much of the great info from the Goat Spot Archives and wanted to ask for advice. I am new to the forum and have been slowly making my way through the posts and learning a...

    Arg! I just picked up a buck to breed with my two does about three days ago (picked him up a bit premature as we were waiting to get the results back from the vet on CAE). I live about 4 hours away and was only able to do the trip then so I was unable to keep waiting on results. I risked it...

    I am needing to test my goat(s), which lab is the best, but also the most cost effective? I am in Ga. Also, do you normally test ALL goats, or just a few in the herd to consider the herd negative? Also, what is the typical cost per sample?

    I have an 8 year old buck who served as my herd sire for most of this time. He was my first buck, and because I was inexperienced, I didn't know to ask for CAE test status. He turned out to be positive int he first year, but he's served us well. He's getting up there in age, and the poor...

    I tried searching for CAE and cae, both come up with no results on the forum, but I know there are probably a lot of posts about it somewhere? Am I doing something wrong? There is a lot of conflicting information about transmission of CAE on the internet, I saw only through milk/colostrum, I...

  13. Beginners Goat Raising
    Hello everyone, I hope you all are having a wonderful afternoon/day. I've been lurking around for the past week getting answers to all the questions that have crossed my mind since getting our first baby. He's a sweet little 3 week old Nubian with so much personality. My family is totally in...

    This is my first post but I am going to get straight to the matter at hand. I have a CAE positive boer doe, who is also about two weeks from kidding. We did not know she was positive and they were both pregnant when we got them from a very reputable CAE free herd. Delilah is her name, I love her...

    I have a showing herd of registered NDs. A couple of my does live at a sister farm some miles away and are co owned by a friend. The farm's owner wants to bring in several LaMancha wethers for brush management. One of these wethers, who are being sold as a set, has a dam who tested positive...

    My goat friend asked me to pregnancy test his new doe, and CAE test her at the same time. And her CAE came back POSITIVE. I just got the results tonight, so I haven't told him yet. I want to know what advise should I give him? (he's 83 years old, and has had lots of disappointments from his...

    If my doe or all my does end up positive with CAE what do I do? Is it true that you can just heat the CAE positive milk and the milk is cured and wont pass it on to the kids? I've done little research so far but some people say I have to isolate the doe with CAE from my herd.Others say it is not...

    I believe it is a disease but what is it and the affects of it? Babies can get it from the mom's milk? Is it safe for people to drink a CAE positive goat's milk? How can you have it tested. What to do if my doe has it? She is bred so what do I do? :GAAH:

    Well my very lovable and gentle Amos came back positive for CAE when I sent blood to WADDL. :( On the plus side he is CL and Johne's negative. I knew it was wishful thinking that anyone near me would have a negative buck. My one goat is *fingers crossed* pregnant as she didn't come back in...

    I just sent my first blood samples off to Biotracking for testing today, for pregnancy & CAE. On the submission form, you can check off how you want to be notified, by mail, phone or email. I checked off the last two and noted that either way is good. Now I'm thinking mail would have been...
