Online training – Case study 1: Aborting goats

Background

Mrs Capricorn lives on her dairy goat property, which is 60 hectares. She is passionate about her goats, and has a lucrative dairy selling both goats’ milk and cheeses. The artisanal cheese sector in Australia is booming, and providing high quality, regional product is vital to her market strategy.

She is a member of the Dairy Goat Society of Australia and of the Australian Specialist Cheesemakers Association. When she intends to buy goats she requires the vendor to provide a completed, National Goat Health Declaration (NGHD) so she can learn as much as she can about the health status of the goats she may bring into her herd.
