USDA Scrapie Program

USDA is working on eradicating Scrapie Disease from the United States.  Scrapie is a fatal degenerative disease affecting the central nervous system of sheep and goats.  Scrapie has a negative impact on our ability to export animals to other countries.  Also, there is a relationship between Scrapie and BSE (Mad Cow), Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (Humans) and Chronic Wasting Disease (Deer) as these all have the same classification – transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSE).
