I'm glad you cleared that up for me. :thumbup: It makes PERFECT sense. I have read and heard so much about CAE that :shrug:susanne said:if a kid is tested positive when younger than six month, it will only tell if it had gotten colostrum from a positive doe. if the colostrum was pasteurized properly, this kid will go from positive to negative. if this kid test negative, you can assume that it had colostrum from negative animals.
i test all kids that are coming new to my farm as soon as they arrive, no matter the age as this will tell me if the kid was exposed and what can be expected in the future. it will be retested with six month to make sure it is negative.
does this makes sense to you?
