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.
