Scrapie Research Sheep Flock Materials

A flock of scrapie-infected sheep was started from USDA-quarantined flocks in the early 1990's. This flock was closed to new additions in 1995, and the disease maintained by breeding and lambing the infected ewes annually until 2014.

Suffolk Sheep

Several government agencies, Universities and commercial companies have used this flock as a source of scrapie materials for a large variety of research protocols. Scrapie positive and negative tissues are available for research purposes. Contact the Caine Center at (208) 454-8657 for availability and cost.
