The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, Veterinary Services portion of the USDA Web site contains the latest information on scrapie. In order to find the remaining scrapie infected sheep and goats and to demonstrate to the world that the U.S. is scrapie free, we need more sample submissions from mature sheep and goats that die on farm. The only diagnostic tests currently available to determine if a sheep or goat has scrapie require brain or lymphoid tissue. To access the USDA/APHIS/VS Scrapie web site, click here .

The National Institute for Animal Agriculture also spearheaded a Scrapie Education Initiative . Review documents for the sheep and the goat industries.
