The National Johne’s Management Plan

Manage the potential disease affecting your current and future herd.

Johne’s is a chronic progressive intestinal disease caused by the infection with Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (MAP). It
can have a significant impact on the technical performance of the cow affecting productivity and fertility. Animals are usually infected as calves with approximately 80% of infections occurring within the first month of life.

By the 31st October 2018 all farmers supplying purchasing members of the National Johne’s Management Plan (NJMP) will need to have undertaken an assessment of their risks and herd status. A written Johne’s disease management plan will need to be put in place along with a co-signed
declaration of compliance with their BCVA Johne’s accredited vet.

The CIS Johne’s Quarterly Testing results are available to be reviewed on the CIS website and are integrated into action lists enabling you to make informed decisions about your current and future herd health and performance.
