Animal Health Australia (AHA) manages the Australian Johne’s Disease Market Assurance Program for Goats (GoatMAP) to help producers identify and promote their low risk of Johne’s disease infection.
The GoatMAP is an essential component of the Johne’s disease control and eradication programs which operate in some states. The role of the MAP in these programs is to:
- provide a source of low risk replacement goats for those herds who want to avoid introducing infection
- facilitate the movement of low risk goats between zones
- allow herds to demonstrate their status in a transparent way so that they can sell breeding or herd replacement goats with confidence
- reduce the risk of Johne’s disease being spread at events such as shows and sales.
The current version of the GoatMAP manual, released in 2009, contains updates about the use of the pooled faecal culture test and vaccination in goat flocks.
