AlpacaMAP

Animal Health Australia (AHA) manages Australia’s Johne’s Disease Market Assurance Program for Alpaca (AlpacaMAP) to help producers identify and promote their low risk of Johne’s disease infection.

Members of the Australian Alpaca Association, Australian Camelid Veterinary Association, Animal Health Committee and the National Johne’s Disease Coordinator developed AlpacaMAP with advice from the Australian, state and territory governments.

AlpacaMAP manual

AHA released version 1 of the AlpacaMAP manual in 2001 and version 2 in 2005.

In 2010, a pooled faecal culture test for alpaca was approved and added to the AlpacaMAP manual as Appendix 13. Appendix 13 will be incorporated when the manual is next revised.
