One of our does just came back CAE+. We just bought her so we knew this was a possibility... Craigslist find, as well, and it looks like she's been to at least two auctions... Yeah, bad idea. Call it beginner's unluck. She has two kids who came with her and I'm not sure if they nursed or not. Our vet said CAE testing wasn't reliable until the kids were 6 months, so we're holding off testing for now. The doe shows no signs of CAE, but the results weren't borderline... I used Biotracking, they use the ELISA. Her % Inhibition was 90... they consider anything over 40 positive, so not only is it positive, it's Positive, capital-P. My question is, what do I do with this doe? My goal is to someday be a reputable breeder and I really want a CAE-free herd. I'm NOT too attached to this doe. I don't like the Saanen breed to begin with and she's very bossy and sometimes violent. I don't feel experienced enough to breed her and take the kids... I don't feel like I know labor signs enough to be there, you know? And I feel funny drinking milk from a CAE+ goat. So do I sell her? Who would buy a CAE-positive goat? Maybe try to bulk her up and send her off for meat? So, if you had a positive doe, what would you do? Edit: We ARE retesting just to be sure but I really doubt the results will change.
