High Health Herd

If you're investing in stock, make sure it's healthy stock.

The creation of Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC) took place in 2012 by merging SAC (the Scottish Agricultural College) with three respected partners.

SAC Consulting Veterinary Services, a division of SRUC, provides advice and laboratory services to thousands of customers in Great Britain, Ireland and Worldwide, as well as the Premium Sheep & Goat Health Schemes.

The Premium Sheep and Goat Health Schemes (PSGHS) works in partnership with veterinary surgeons across the country.  It is serviced by SAC Consulting Vets who have expertise covering all aspects of sheep and goat health issues.

SRUC MV/CAE Accreditation Scheme

Here at Keythorpe we're a member of the SAC Accredited Scheme for Caprine Arthritis Encephalitis (CAE) and are pleased to report that our herd is testing negative.

We also test for Caseous Lymphadenitis (CLA) and again our herd is negative.

And finally we test for Johnes disease and again our herd is negative.

So you can rest assured when sourcing your stock from Keythorpe Boer Goats that you are not buying in any problems.

We were also recently (October 2018) randomly selected by the APHA (Animal and Plant Health Agency) for our goat herd to be blood tested for Brucellosis and the results came back as clear.
