Dairy producers and their herd veterinarians commonly ask:
- What is the best test to help control JD in dairy cattle?
- What should I do with cattle that test ELISA-positive?
- How can I avoid buying MAP-infected cattle?
- Which test should I use to certify my herd is free of Johne’s disease?
- What are my first steps in controlling Johne’s disease?
- Should I use the ELISA for JD on blood (serum) or milk samples?
- Will JD control improve my farm profitability – what’s the evidence?
- How common are national JD control programs and how to they work?
These and many more questions are addressed in a new two-part lecture series titled “Johne’s Disease in Dairy Cattle part 1 and part 2” (40 minutes each) now available on this website. You will also find on this same web page lectures titled “Johne’s Disease in Goats” and “MAP is a Zoonotic Pathogen”.
