I need draw blood and send it the way of the dodo for my yearly cae, cl and johnes. Where do you send yours to? I usually let the vet send it in for me. I think one goes to rollings in raleigh here (cl i believe) but not sure where the other goes to.

Eta. Has anyone used sage ag labs?

I have been using UBRL the past few years and very happy with them
Can you help me with the set up fee? I see it on the pricing list but cannot find if it is just a one fee for all animals or each animal for the first time i send blood in. I am guessing it is for the farm set up in their system? But i have looked at every page and cannot find this info. :/.

The set up fee is a $10 (I believe) fee that you pay any time you have less than 4 samples to be tested (except for pregnancy testing.)

I also use UBRL and I like them a lot. I sent them a sample a few weeks ago and there was a fiasco with the post office and tracking, but Omar at UBRL was super helpful throughout the ordeal.

I'm curious what other people use as well! I've used Rollins lab for Johne's testing (did blood and fecal culture b/c I was paranoid) and also CAE so I know they do those. I'm not sure they do CL though.. only sent that through vet. I don't see CL listed on their price sheet

So i was just backward at rollins. :). I knew john sent somethin to them.

Rollins for CAE and Johnes.
Rollins then sends the sample to UC Davis for CL testing.

If you are doing the CL test, use a reputable and accredited lab. I don't believe sage is accredited.

Wasn't me! I have Nigerians :) But I did have PO troubles and even though my sample got there several days late (they sent it all the way to its destination city and then BACK to my local distribution center and then back again before it was finally delivered!) and I had to wait an extra week to have it tested due to missing the cutoff window, they were still able to use the sample and it all worked out in the end!

When you goin to southern states again???? I will give you lunch and snack monies to come draw on one possibly two boys lol! I could NOT get blood on tristan.... who SOMEONE is bred to. Ugh! I remember having to have john do him last year too. It is dumb! I could feel his beater nice n strong, poke, nope. We even took him off the stand to try get his neck a bit more long but nope.

Then there was D.... he is a jerkface when it comes to bein caught. So he was a nope goat from the start.

Everyone else i got though.

With Tris, You want to check that your needle's hole is facing the skin not the body and if you poke and you know you hit vein but nothings going in the tube ...ever so slowly back the needle out... because you might have gone through the vein, backing it out slowly you can see when the tube starts filling and stop there. I've done thousands of punctures and usually this will work. (paramedic/nurse)
With Donatello...Just try some crazy ninja moves...stinker ;)
