Been there, done that. What’s next for Johne’s disease?

May 12, 2023 | Webinars

Johne’s disease isn’t a new challenge facing herds; but it may be one that has fallen into a rut or forgotten, particularly if herd prevalence is low. You’ve been there and done that; so what’s next? In this webinar recording from May 10, 2023, Dr. Don Niles, dairy operations manager, Pagel Family Businesses in Wisconsin, and Dr. Scott Wells, College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Minnesota, discuss practical approaches to level up your herd’s Johne’s management. With research focused on the surveillance, prevention, and control of infectious pathogens of cattle and other food animals, Dr. Wells discusses currently-available prevention and treatment methods, as well as why managing Johne’s is still relevant today. Dr. Niles shares management strategies proven effective in reducing Johne’s. He’ll discuss benefits dairies realize and what’s next, even if you’ve made great progress in disease reduction. You will learn: — the importance of ongoing-Johne’s management, even if herd prevalence is low; — next steps to level up your program, even if it’s making great progress; and — practical and effective management strategies.
