Infectious Disease

Knowledge is power. And goat producers need to know all they can about infectious disease that could potentially devastate their flock or hurt the entire industry. Scrapie is a fatal, degenerative disease affecting the central nervous system of sheep and goats. It is among a number of diseases classified as transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSE). Infected flocks can experience significant production losses. Use the links below to find out how you can help fight to eradicate scrapie and prepare for a potential outbreak of foot and mouth disease.
