Health Testing and Upcoming Events

CAE, Johnes and CL

Our herd is tested annually for CAE and Jhones. This year we did blood and fecal testing for Jhones, all of which are available to see upon request. Our last round of testing was done in July of 2021 and we only buy from herds with proof of clean testing within the last year or closed herds with history of testing prior to closing. We do not test for CL. We have strict quarantine procedures for any abscesses that arise and all abscesses are tested for CL before the animal leaves quarantine. For any questions regarding our testing methods or to see our most up to date results, please feel free to contact us by email  (thunderridgeranch@outlook.com) or through our facebook page.

Classification

We have applied for classification the last two years but unfortunately the program has not been able to be run. We are very hopeful 2022 will be a go! This is a wonderful opportunity to learn what we can improve and grow in our herd.

Milk Testing

2021 was our first year participating in annual milk testing and it was a wonderful experience! We completed two separate One Day Milk tests and many of our does received their stars! This is a practice we plan to continue yearly so we have an idea what our does are producing for protein, butterfat and weight. Individual results are posted under each profile.
