    Wouldn't that be the neatest if it worked? But alas no.

    Go to www.biotracking.com they do bloodtests on all ruminants and can tell you "after 25 days with 99% reliability if your goat, sheep, cow, elk or deer or any other wild or domestic ruminant is pregnant! 2 to 4 cc of whole blood in a red topped vacuum tube and mail without ice."

    I and several others on our diary goat forum used them last year and they where 100% right with mine. Vicki

    Hi, I get them from my vet. You can also ask your feed dealer to order them for you and others in your area for CAE testing also, ours intown used to carry them. Perhaps even contacting the company, I know WSU supplied our old club with vacutainer tubes and the styrofoam caddy to send them back in when we had a large draw for CAE back in the day. Vicki
