Goats and Johne's Disease - information for smallholders (May 2012)

DPIPWE have produced a fact sheet for goat owners about Johne's Disease.

It is a beginner's guide and aimed at hobby farmers and smallholders.  Other ruminant species are also susceptible to Johne's Disease.  So it is also in the interest of other livestock industries that the local goat owners have at least a basic understanding of Johne's disease - how to prevent it, when to seek help and how to manage it.

The fact sheet can be downloaded from the DPIPW E website
