The National Johne’s Education Initiative announces the availability of free brochure about Johne’s disease.
Dairy producers who have culled one or more animals for unresponsive chronic diarrhea combined with reduced milk production and thin condition might want to learn more about Johne’s disease—and find out if their herds are infected with Johne’s disease.
The new brochure describes how animals become infected with the organism that causes Johne’s disease, details measures producers can take to help prevent and control Johne’s disease and explains herd testing strategies. The brochure, which is underwritten by USDA-APHIS-VS and produced by the National Johne’s Education Initiative overseen by the National Institute for Animal Agriculture, is science based and written in producer language.
