The National Johne’s Management Plan

The operational requirements of Phase II are:

  • Members of the NJMP require their associated farmers to obtain annually over three years beginning 1st January 2017 a signed declaration by a BCVA Johne’s Certified Veterinary Adviser that they will be implementing one of the six strategies specified by the National Johne’s Management Plan. (The six control strategies remain unchanged from Phase I)

  • In 2018 and 2019 the declaration would confirm that the farmer at the time of the consultation: – had reassessed their risk and status and, – was correctly utilising the management information, equipment, husbandry and resources to implement the strategy effectively.

  • All the vets here at AVLA have passed the required qualification to be able to advise you on how best to proceed with your Johnes management.
