TRUE CASES & STORIES



Sadly, the same story repeats itself over and over.


Owners discover Johne's disease in their herd or flock when a single animal looks sick. They then find out by testing that many animals they own actually are infected. Usually, they can trace the infection back to an animal they bought years ago. It is depressing, particularly when so many animals now must be sacrificed to control the infection. This exact story has been documented in all of the animals shown on this page. For specific details of stories with some happy and some not so happy endings, choose the animal which will take you to the "True Stories" section for animals in that area of interest.

True stories are often the best teaching tools. "The smart person learns from his/her mistakes but the wise person learns from the mistakes of others."
