    I know there are folks from around IN here, so I thought I would ask if TB testing is needed in this state? I know that some states have head outbreaks and testing is important, while other states haven't seen it in decades, and people don't test.

    Indiana is considered a TB/Brucellosis free state. You can do the tests, but it really isn't necessary.

    I would test for CL, maybe CAE but CAE milk can be drank either way. I wouldn't want to drink the milk from a doe with CL, for fear of an abcess breaking open in the udder... Shudder... Woudn't want to drink that milk, ewww. LOL
