our little flock had been enrolled in the SFCP since December 2009. In 2017 we achieved the rank of Certified! Maintaining our high standing in the program means being followed by a Scrapie Certified Vet, lots of paperwork, fees and annual health inspections.
Scrapie has been present in Canada for almost 70 years. With the majority of countries around the world currently working to actively eradicate all transmissible spongiform encephalopathies, the continued presence of Scrapie in Canada is preventing access to international markets including the United States. With your help, Canada can take action to eradicate Scrapie.
In 2020, we decided to withdrawal our participation in the Scrapie Canada program, due to the increasing costs and demands the program continues to require. Our flock maintained it's Certified standing and we will continue to follow the same high health standards that the program required of us.
