"This is because we have no scientific evidence, as we do in sheep, that some goats are genetically resistant to the disease," explains Diane L. Sutton, DVM, NSEP coordinator for the U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Animal Health and Inspection Service-Veterinary Services (APHIS-VS).
"Because we know that sheep with genotypes AARR are scrapie resistant and AAQR are rarely susceptible, those animals can remain in a scrapie-infected or scrapie-exposed flock once they have been genotyped. AVQR sheep may also be retained if the positive animals in the flock are all AAQQ. At this point, we don't have the genetic knowledge to determine which goats are susceptible to scrapie and which are not, so we must assume they all are," states Sutton.
So is there anything a producer, who has both sheep and goats, can do to protect goats?
"Yes, where practical, the goats and sheep can be kept separately. We know that scrapie is not an airborne disease, but rather spread through exposure to birthing fluids and/or the placenta at lambing or kidding. So if the species are kept completely separate, the goat operation could continue uninterrupted," says Sutton.

According to Diane Sutton, DVM, National Scrapie Program Coordinator with USDA APHIS, "There has been a 96-percent decrease in the percentage of positive sheep sampled at slaughter (adjusted for face color) since the start of the Regulatory Scrapie Slaughter Surveillance (RSSS) in fiscal year 2003.

Dr. Diane Sutton of USDA/APHIS reviewed the current highlights from the National Scrapie Eradication Program. The number of scrapie cases in sheep have been steadily declining as a result of selective breeding programs and slaughter trace back efforts. She also discussed proposed changes in the Scrapie Flock Certification Program which will be announced this spring. In the last ten years, 25 cases of scrapie in goats have been diagnosed with an increase in the annual numbers in the past 3-5 years.
