SRL Fainters

Now that the dust has settled; we had purchased 5 does from a breeder near Edmonton in March. 3 Fainting does and my younger sister purchased two Nigerian does.
She decided to sell the one doe and she was sent on her way in September to Ontario. She was tested upon arrival for Johnes and came back positive and was euthanized. I have since tested all my goats for Johnes. My sisters other Nigerian she has purchased came back positive and she has been euthanized. All my Fainting goats as well as my 8 Savanna X does came back negative.
All my young stock are in quarantine until I test them this spring. If you have purchased any kids in 2018, please contact me. Any kids out of Reba, Harriot, or Pancake are at a higher risk of Johnes exposure due to being born in the same pen as the positive does. Any kids out of my other does are at a lower risk as they were only exposed to the positive does during summer grazing where the feces were in lower concentration. The adult goats are at a low risk as the rumen does kill the bacteria due to the fermentation process.
If you have any questions, feel free to email me.
All tests were done by fecal testing through the Animal Health Centre labratory in Abbotsford, B.C that is operated by the government of British Columbia.
All my goats will be tested again in May/June of 2019. All summer pastures used in 2018 will not be grazed. The one winter pen that housed the does (the only group to have a positive animal in it) will not be used this winter for any reason. It will be scraped down to clay in the spring and topped up with fresh clay from the clay pile that hasn't had any goat feces interaction. I will most likely test again in the fall of 2019. If all tests come back negative (as well as young stock), we will be Johnes free with caution. I may not use my pastures again in 2020 to be in the safe side.
Once again, IF you have purchased goats from me in 2018 please contact me as my laptop has crashed and I do not have access to the files at the present time.
Thank you.
Also to note, none of the infected does had kids that were sold.

SRL Fainters was established in 2014 with the purchase of the Twilight Acres nucleus breeding flock. In 2016, my brother, Goats R Us Miniatures, decided to exit the goat business. I purchased the majority of the flock (which I had managed for 5 years prior) which doubled my numbers. In the winter of 2018, I was given the opportunity to purchase the last and precious doe, Twilight Acres Cayenne, from Twilight Acres as well as three bred does from Caprine Falls, as she reduced her numbers due to health concerns. These recent additions add the much wanted colour factor to the flock. In my effort to supply quality breeding stock and pets, opportunities are taken to provide you with choices that satisfy your desires for your perfect goat.

I graduated from R.F. Staples Secondary School in 2014. I completed the Christian Ministry diploma at Millar College of the Bible in the spring of 2017. I am currently in the Animal Science Technology Diploma program at Lakeland College. The plan is to either go farming after this or maybe I will go and take a Charted Accountant program at an university. I haven't quite decided. 

Please use the contact form to send an email. I will do my best to get back to you as soon as possible.

Thank you for contacting us. We will get back to you as soon as possible
