Australia's National research program for ovine Johne's disease (OJD) was managed by Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) as part of the National Ovine Johne's Disease Control and Evaluation Program (NOJDP). This six-year program ran from 1998 to 2004, with the aims of:

  • Determining the extent of OJD infection in Australia,
  • Evaluating if eradication of the disease was feasible and cost effective,
  • Developing management and control options to assist affected producers; and
  • Minimising the spread of the infection during the evaluation phase.

The NOJDP and associated research program have now officially concluded, although a number of projects are continuing over the next few years.

Copies of project reports and related documents have now been indexed and some are available for download from this collection.
