so do the vets do the cae tests?? havent had mine doen before but think i need to....
They just take blood sample, mine sends it to SAC, don't know if they all do, find a form on the BGS website and fill that in in advance if you can, should save time and money.
I think any stud goat owner who cares about goats would have their males tested and would expect to see a CAE negative cert for the doe before letting her anywhere near him. So if you want to show, breed or just be sure the goats are healthy, then you should have them tested, must get my girls tested well before billy-time this year, billy was going travelling and we nearly missed him waiting for the certificate, all came together at the last minute.
(yes, that was me last year
