CattleMAP: next steps

As of 1 November 2016, the Australian Johne’s Disease Market Assurance Program for Cattle (CattleMAP) will transition to alternative industry assurance systems. This outcome follows a review of CattleMAP, undertaken by Herd Health P/L on behalf of the BJD Steering Committee. The new arrangements for CattleMAP participants is the final step in the wider BJD Review process. Click here for more information.

New JD in cattle Framework released

The interests of Australian cattle producers have driven the development of the new JD in cattle Framework document. The Framework, released 15 February 2016, outlines a fresh approach to the management of the endemic disease and is the result of 12 months of consultation and evaluation of existing practices, led by AHA on behalf of industry.

The Framework clearly outlines how Australia will manage JD in cattle into the future and shifts the focus of JD management to the wider biosecurity practice of reduction and management of all diseases. Click here for more information.
