Details

Cases of TSE disease found in goats from passive surveillance in Great Britain have been recorded since 1993. The UK started active surveillance in goats in January 2002.

In active surveillance, the number of sheep sampled in the testing programme has varied each year. It has always included:

  • a sample of fallen goats over 18 months of age.
  • a sample of healthy slaughtered goats over 18 months of age (no longer in place)

Cases which have been identified from herds in the Compulsory Scrapie Flock Scheme (CSFS) are shown separately.

APHA attempt to trace all cases of scrapie back to their natal (birth) herd so that it can can confirm disease on the appropriate premises for control measures to be applied. In some cases this can take time. Where a final decision has not been made on where to confirm disease, the case is included in the number of pending cases.

At present no atypical cases of scrapie have been found in British goats.
