Sounds like they wanted you to join one of the schemes... The SAC accredited scheme requires you to test 3 times every 6 months before you become accredited, then you only test twice a year.


The BGS has negotiated cheaper lab fees with one lab in particular, so it does provide a bit of a discount (not much though!).


Our bill still works out at about £14- £15 per goat, once you add in the vets fee's and call out charges.

You do have to be a member of the BGS to benefit from this.

Do you? There isn't anything asked for to prove your BGS membership status.

The BGS website has the details on there, and anyone can access this page, not just members.

anybody can access the BGS website & download the form.  SAC dont ask for membership proof.........so I am sure many people take advantage of the cheaper rates.   SAC process to the cheaper rate if on the BGS form.
