Where do I start? I am brand new to goats as of February this year and my oldest will be 6 months on August 3rd. So I figure I need to get all of the knowledge I can on where to get this testing done. I can draw my own blood, as I am a Vet Tech student currently and have many professors who will help me out with proper technique and location on a goat, but since the program isn't a large animal/livestock program, we don't do much more than one semester with large animals and livestock and these diseases aren't covered much as far as testing goes. I was wondering where I would be able to send samples to for the testing and what age I should do this?

I know 3 of my 5 came from a CAE/CL free herd and were pulled off of their dams and put on pasteurized milk. My LaManchas, were more or less a rescue because the guy just had no clue what to do for them.

Please help me out here as I would love to test and manage a clean herd from the very beginning. Thank you!
