I am told that many goats sold at the sale barn end up in the slaughter house.

Is the general public eating CAE positive goats?


Can someone enlighten me on this subject :shrug:

Since the are whole herds of meat goats in some areas with CAE, I would think it was inevitable that CAE goats are eaten. I've heard that it is not an issue with human health.
With the testing that occured last year, I heard that all the animals imported from an out of state farm tested positive although they were expensive animals.

This makes sense to me but with all the bruhaha about CAE and all the other diseases that affect goats I wasn't sure.


For those of you raising your own meat, it sure is good to know what you're eating. :shades:

I'm not going to say that our meat goats don't have CAE, since we haven't done tests, and they are otherwise healthy, but CAE is not a disease that can be passed to humans. Its not like its listerosis, or TB, or BSE :wink:
