Johne’s disease in cattle

Animal Health Australia (AHA) coordinates the national Johne’s disease (JD) in cattle Framework on behalf of the Australian beef and dairy industries, governments and veterinarians to help reduce the spread and impact of JD in Australia.

The dairy and beef industries have adopted a ‘sector’ approach to the control and management of the disease using common tools, such as sound farm biosecurity practices, testing, National Cattle Health Declarations and voluntary risk profiling tools.
