New thinking on Johne's disease: Webinar
Join Pete Orpin, a practical farm vet in Leicestershire, and hear about the latest developments in Johne’s control.
The control of Johne’s Disease (JD) is a real challenge, but one that can be tackled. The majority of dairy farms in Great Britain are now part of the National Johne’s Management Plan and have adopted one of the six strategies for dealing with Johne’s Disease recommended by the Action Group on Johne’s.
Pete will talk about how vets and farmers can effectively work together to reduce the prevalence in their herds using structured risk assessments, farm walks and 100% engagement in Johne’s Disease control using the National Johne’s Management Plan.
The webinar will cover:
- A review of the risks of transmission and new thinking on disease progression within infected herds
- Advice on how we can effectively manage and create a clear plan of action for infected cows
- How to generate a ‘green calving line and green calf line’ to produce healthy, productive low-risk JD replacements
