HISTORY
JOHNE'S INFORMATION CENTER - University of Wisconsin Ñ School of Veterinary Medicine

Friday, July 12, 2002
U.S. House of Representatives approves $20 million for Johne's. The House Agriculture Appropriations Subcommittee approved $20,352,000 for the National Johne's Disease Management and Testing Program. The money will be used for testing during the first year of the program. A provision in the original plan to pay producers fair market value for animals that test positive and are culled did not receive funding. The full House Appropriations Committee is expected to take action this week. Although the Senate has yet to approve funding for the Johne's program, approval is not expected to be a problem.
