An economic decision support tool for simulating paratuberculosis control strategies in a UK suckler herd.
R. Bennett, I. McClement and I. McFarlane, University of Reading, UK.
Preventive Veterinary Medicine 93:286-293, 2010.

A dynamic, deterministic, economic simulation model was developed to estimate the costs and benefits of Johne’s disease control in suckler beef herds, known in the U.S. as cow-calf operations. This is the first such model dealing with beef cattle herds.

The model is available free at: http://www.fhpmodels.reading.ac.uk/.

The publication describing the model is available at: http://www.elsevier.com/wps/find/journaldescription.cws_home/503315/description#description
