Coccidia is a parasite that infects the intestinal tract of animals. While a goat may have some coccidia in its fecal sample, if the count becomes too high and the burden becomes too great, we say the goat has "Coccidiosis". Diarrhea is the primary symptom of coccidiosis and there are many ways to prevent or treat coccidiosis.
CAE stands for Caprine Arthritis Encephalitis. It is a virus that affects goats and not humans. Goats pass CAE to each other via infected colostrum, milk, or blood. It is not passed from feces, breeding, or sharing food and water. If you raise goats, it's important to make sure that your herd is CAE free.
The sun radiates massive amounts of energy to the earth continuously. We humans can only harness a little bit of that, and we do so inefficiently. Goats on the other hand supply nearly all of their energy needs by efficiently converting solar energy stored in grasses and other plant material. How can they do this?
