Ireland launches effort to eradicate paratuberculosis.

Motivated by a need to protect its €1.7 billion annual infant milk formula sales, Animal Health Ireland today announced that the Johne’s Disease Implementation Group has agreed the commencement of a new program for the control of Johne’s Disease in Ireland. Building on the experience of the pilot control program for dairy herds (2014-2016), the design of this new broadly-based control program has been agreed by the Implementation Group, taking account of the recommendations of the Johne’s Disease Technical Working Group. The program will be introduced in two phases, the first phase commencing early in September 2017, and the second phase expected to start early in 2018.
