Integrated approaches to control of the chronic infectious diseases acquired early in life can greatly enhance longevity in goat herd. Kid rearing strategies, adult herd management concepts and serologic/necropsy surveillance strategies for integrated prevention and control programs for multiple pathogens will be discussed. Clinical herd examples will be incorporated into discussion to illustrate practical strategies for control of caseous lymphadenitis, CAE, mycoplasma and other diseases in dairy and meat goat herds.

This session is part of CE Pathway: Diseases in Large Animal / Production Animals

Learning Objectives

1. Understand pathogenesis and diagnosis of major caprine infectious diseases, including CAE, mycoplasma, caseous lymphadenitis, Johnes and scrapie.

2. Be able to design cost effective surveillance and control strategies for diseases of major importance to clients' goat herds.
