    I plan on saling extra so I might as well have a vet do it so that I don't get into trouble about it.

    Have you done/looked into doing it through WADDL? If I remember right, their paperwork simply states that, for Brucella testing, the vet must be the one drawing the blood and sending it in. I don’t remember seeing any exceptions for dairy or export vs. just the owner wanting to know.

    Would you mind sharing that vet's info? Sounds like you're located near me, and I'm also looking for a vet for my goats. Feel free to PM me if you don't want to share the info here.

    @Jesusfreak101 to PM (private message) mouse over your screen name top right and a drop down menu will appear. Click on "Conversations" and it will open your PM area. If you click on start a new conversation it will open a message blank. When you type the person's SN you wan to send to, you don't use the "@" symbol like you do when tagging someone in a post. Just type the SN and you're good to go, type the message you want to send and check if you want it to be an open or closed conversation, then "Start" the conversation. :)
