    BET runs a total estrogen hormone assay test on urine 50 days post breeding. The test is more reliable after 60-62 days than at 50 days. The cost is $12.00 per sample (Feb 1996) and it requires 2ml urine in a clean container.

    Submit at least 2 mls of serum via an overnight mail carrier. Include an ice pack if weather is hot, but it's not critical if the samples are sent sent for next day delivery. If you don't have a way of separating the serum from the clotted blood, send the whole blood sample and they'll centrifuge the tube to get the serum. They test for a protein produced by the fetus that can be detected in goats by day 25 or greater of gestation. The charge is $7.50 per sample Turn around time approx 1 week.
