    I used pavlabs just recently. Turns out it is private and not certified? Someone said that to be CL, CAE, or whatever 'free' you have to do it through a certified lab, such as washington state? Anyone else heard about it?
    But Pavlab was easy to use, IMO.

    Pavlab is privately run, and not an 'accepted' test for government use (as in health certificates etc)

    For $2 more per goat - worth going with a certified lab ;-) I hear they send out the Cl stuff to UC Davis anyways.
