Assistance for JD in beef cattle

For help with JD in cattle producers should talk to their local cattle veterinarian, or for technical advice speak to their Department JD coordinator.

FNF Assistance Package – has closed

The previous National BJD Financial and Non-financial (FNF) Assistance Package commenced on 1 July 2004 and finished on 1 July 2016. The package provided financial and non-financial assistance to beef cattle producers with BJD-infected herds or confirmed cases of infection.

The purpose of the FNF Assistance Package was to minimise the social, economic and trade impact of BJD at herd, regional and national levels by:

  • providing financial assistance to affected producers
  • reducing BJD prevalence
  • remove the stigma associated with BJD infection and reduce emotional stress.
