JSAVA Vol 85, No 1 (2014) > Designing a risk communication strategy for health hazards posed by traditional slaughter of goats in Tshwane, South Africa. In African societies, traditional slaughter is linked to celebrations like weddings or births, as well as funerals and ancestor veneration.
Participants in traditional slaughter of goats are at risk of exposure to hazards during slaughter, food preparation and consumption of goat meat. For risk mitigation strategies to be implemented, identification of the population at risk is required. This study is based on the premise that the demographic profile of people involved in traditional slaughter of goats is important for risk communication. Both structured and informal interviews were recorded and analysed using a thematic analysis. A total of 105 people were interviewed at taxi ranks in Tshwane, Gauteng. Informal slaughter and consumption of livestock for traditional or ritual or cultural purposes, including African traditional religion, is permitted under the provisions of the Meat Safety Act, Act 40 of 2000 (Department of Agriculture 2000).

PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question E-002511-15 Intra-Community movement of sheep and goats intended for breeding. Under the amended version of Regulation (EC) 999/2001, as from 1 January 2015 sheep and goats intended for breeding may be brought into a Member State with the status of ‘region with a negligible risk’ only if they are of the ARR/ARR (G1) genotype and the breeding holding is not subject to scrapie-related restrictions, or if the holding is also classified as a ‘holding with a negligible risk’.
As well as making the intra-Community movement of animals significantly more costly and complex, this change has made it quite impossible to move certain breeds of sheep and indeed all breeds of goat from one Member State to another, since there are some breeds in which the required ARR allele is either extremely rare or never found. One such case is the seriously endangered Tauernsheck goat from Austria. This breed is at risk of extinction, and foreign breeders from Germany and South Tyrol have been working extremely hard to preserve it. 1. Is the Commission aware of this problem? 2.

These hazards include Toxoplasma gondii, pathogenicverocytotoxin-producing Escherichia coli and mycobacteria.

Acta Veterinaria Scandinavica 2013, 55:27 Occurrence of congenital disorders in Swiss sheep. We sent questionnaires to the 3,183 members of the Swiss sheep breeders’ association, which represents about a third of all 9,428 registered sheep farmers in Switzerland in 2011 .
A total of 993 questionnaires were returned (31.2%), 862 of which dealt with one or more of the four breeds included: 385 flocks of SWA, 204 of BHM, 150 of SBS, and 123 of VBS, respectively. The 862 farmers corresponded to 9.1% of all sheep farmers in Switzerland. In 2011, 68,165 animals of the four main Swiss breeds were registered in the herd book while totally 424,018 sheep were registered in the Swiss Stock Movement Database in 2011 . A total of 19,982 sheep were included in the study in 2011 corresponding to 4.7% of the total registered Swiss sheep population.

The Panel was supported by the EFSA Panels on Contaminants in the Food Chain (CONTAM) and Animal Health and Welfare (AHAW) in the preparation of this Opinion.

Apr 11th, 4:00 PMApr 11th, 4:30 PM Attachment to Caprine Companions: Implications for Social Work Practice The attachment bond between people and their pets has been studied extensively to determine the role it may play in human health and well-being.
Using attachment theory in human relationships, human-animal studies have examined attachment relationships based on four criteria: 1) proximity maintenance – wanting to be close to the animal, 2) safe haven – relieving distress and providing comfort and support, 3) secure base – providing a sense of security leading to risk-taking and self-development, and 4) separation distress when the animal is either temporarily or permanently unavailable.1 These studies have focused on animals typically kept as pets such as dogs, cats, birds, and horses. No known studies have examined attachment relationships between people and farm animals. This preliminary study explores attachment in the human-goat relationship.

Department of Agriculture - SEPT 2001 - The Good Food Guide for SHEEP. Sheep and Goat Production Handbook for Ethiopia. Preface Ethiopia, with over 42 million head, has the third largest number of sheep and goats among African nations and ranks eighth in the world. Traditionally, sheep and goats have served as a means of ready cash and a reserve against economic and agricultural production hardship. However, the proximity of Ethiopia to large Middle Eastern markets demanding export quality sheep and goat carcasses and an increase in the domestic demand for small ruminant meat is leading to a change in the importance and scale of sheep and goat production.
No longer are sheep and goats subsistence livestock species only. Economic opportunities exist for small ruminant producers to supply animals to both the export and domestic markets. The Sheep and Goat Production Handbook for Ethiopia is the first text devoted to small ruminant production written exclusively for Ethiopian conditions by Ethiopian scientists. At this juncture, I would like to express my special thanks to Drs.
