Johne's Disease

Comment on this policy

Johne's is a disease of significant economic importance to cattle and small ruminants. The AVMA will disseminate information and encourage veterinary practitioners to become familiar with ongoing efforts to control Johne's disease. In addition, the AVMA supports research in the development of improved diagnostic tests, management practices, vaccines, and their roles in control efforts in herds and flocks. To that end the AVMA supports active pursuit of maximum and sustained funding to effectively support the USDA Johne's National Control Program.
