    Since its testing month for me I'm curious about what tests everyone does on their (pet) wethers? Do you test them for CL/Johnnes? What about CAE? Since they're not used for production would a CAE test be necessary?

    Thanks!

    I wouldn't say a CAE test is necessary, unless you have the dam, and she hasn't been tested, but the others are tests I would do.

    Since the jury is still out on how CAE is transmitted I would test them at least once for CAE especially since they live with your buck and does.
