Okay. More newbie questions. Suppose after I have my does tested they end up having CAE. I have read about breeders "taping" the teats so that the babies cannot nurse. What is that, how does it work, and can you do that when you are expecting your goat to kid so that the baies are unable to nurse when the babies are born? I am asking this, because if the results are no good, I still want to raise CAE free kids. Either my husband or I are home enough to check on the goats throughout the day, and I can make sure I am home more durring kidding season to make sure that the kids get proper nourishment soon after they are born. Or does this matter because the mom might lick the baby off and they could still get it? I have heard that they can still get CAE through the water, etc. And can sheep spread it? *shrugs* If I had known when I was getting goats that there would be so much to worry about, I would have done more homework before bringing the ones I have home.
