I have never had one test positive. I do it for show and sales. Once an animal is tested negative - it is negative for life. It can only be a PI from getting infected as a fetus.

We have never had one test positive. Our vet gets us test tubes and paperwork notch each calf’s ear, which bleed and makes it really simple to get my blood sample on the DNA card. Much easier getting blood that way than having to draw it from the tail. Win win.

I don't use blood cards - just ear notch. Test can be run on either one.
