Goat Health Records

We believe good records are important.

When you purchase a goat from us, we’ll provide a full record of their health history.

We use a simple spreadsheet (shown below) to keep track of everything.

Each goat has their own health profile, and we also have a General Journal for herd management records. We strive for transparency and are open to answering your questions, so reach out to us anytime!

See our Management page to learn more about how we care for our goats.

Blood Testing

If you’re new to goat diseases and want to find out more about goat health and the risks of adding untested animals to your herd, see our Resources page for education.

*2023 We may test again in future for CAE, but we see no reason to test for CL or Johnne’s at this time. If any goats should display symptoms for either of these diseases we would have them quarantined and tested, though this has never happened. If a buyer requests testing for any particular disease on the goat they wish to purchase, we will gladly do so. Please do your research and understand that many tests cannot be performed on younger animals.

New animals entering our herd are often quarantined 30 days as precaution before introducing them to the main herd & we only buy goats from tested herds.

* 2022 Due to the fact that we did not introduce any new animals since the last test, we chose not to test this year.

Aspen Leaf herd Test results below for the Small Ruminant Biosecurity Screen, updated 5/7/2021 Our first blood test showed that our herd is clean; Negative for CL, Johne’s, and CAE.
