In order to make the most of the genetic potential of our goats, we need good feeding, correct handling and, in particular, superior “health conditions”.
Our cabin is officially rated Brucellosis free (M4) and Tuberculosis (T3) free. We have health programs agreed with the Public Administration and the University of Murcia for the control of CAEV (Caprine Arthritis Encephalitis Virus), Contagious Agalactia (Mycoplasmas spp), Paratuberculosis (Mycobacterium aviumsubsp.paratuberculosis), Q fever (Coxiella Burnetti) and Pseudotuberculosis (Corynebacterium pseudotuberculosis).
We also comply with all programs and health controls coordinated by the Health Defense Association.
It is rigorous, in each milking, if a suspicious animal appears immediately we do a California Test to detect possible mastitis; With each dairy control (daily) of all the goats we obtain the individualized Somatic Cell Count (SCC) that will objectively detect possible subclinical mastitis. All udders are sealed and disinfected once the daily milking is finished.
Sick animals are placed in a specific area, where they receive adequate treatment: diet, specific cures and constant monitoring by veterinarians. Our farming facilities take part in a DDR program (Disinfection , Disinsectization, Rodent control) to avoid contamination or the transmission of diseases by rodents, insects, etc.
We follow a parasitosis prevention program for all our animals, with different approaches depending on the season and production stage.
All biosafety protocols are strictly followed.
Finally, we apply a GHP (General Hygiene Plan) to the entire farm, paying special attention to the milking and dairy facilities.
