Ovine Johne’s Disease Research & Development Program
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.
