I am new to raising meat goats, started my herd this spring. And now I am almost regretting it already. I purchased most of my goats (75 head) from the same herd. Was told it was a closed herd for the past 5 years. Animals all looked healthy, well taken care of etc. a few months after getting them home, we noticed one was “off” dewormed her, gave her antibiotics etc and she was still losing weight. We got the vet out and she did a blood sample, from her and 2 others. Can back yesterday as johnes positive I am now getting all the old does tested in a couple weeks. We have 20 kids(2020 offspring) all from the same herd. We are kidding come May. I am so upset and mad at myself, I know buying from a herd that test for disease is not always possible, and I couldn’t fiNd any does from disease tested herd at the time I was looking so this seemed like the next best option. I guess my question is, I know johnes is out there, probably more so then goat owners want to admit. I am in close contact with my vet of how to manage my herd going forward, how has anyone dealt with it, how long does it take to remove the disease from the herd? Is that even possible? Is testing every year and culling the positives the best way to do it? Of is it best to cull the whole herd?
