Goat health - keeping the herd disease-free


Many goat herds are afflicted with diseases that are costly to control and undermine the profitability of the herd. Examples include footrot, internal parasites (particularly those resistant to many commonly used drenches), Johne’s disease, cheesy gland and CAE (big knee) virus.

In many cases these diseases are brought in with purchased goats. This Primefact provides practical steps to help prevent the entry or spread of disease.
