Scrapie Flock Certification Program
The Scrapie Flock Certification Program (SFCP) is a voluntary program that provides an opportunity for producers to protect their sheep from scrapie and enhance the marketability of their animals by certifying their flock as scrapie-free. The SFCP monitors flocks by conducting annual inspections over a five-year period to identify and certify scrapie-free flocks.
The longer a flock is enrolled and in compliance with program requirements, the greater the likelihood that the flock is scrapie-free. The United States Department of Agriculture registers flocks and maintains records.
