We no longer have SCI goats in Florida. The Plimoth Plantation goats in Disneyworld passed away.
The selenium levels in the soil in Floida are low. Florida breeders should supplement goats with selenium.
To enter into Florida:
All goats must be officially individually identified with Scrapies tags.
All goats must be accompanied by an Official Certificate of Veterinary Inspection, sometimes called the health certificate. The
scrapie tag numbers and the statement that "each animal is free of clinical signs of contagious footrot, chlamydial keratoconjunctivitis
(pink eye), contagious ecthyma (Orf) and scabies" must be listed on the Official Certificate of Veterinary Inspection.
