Changes to the Red Tractor dairy standards, which come into force from 1 October, have been published by Red Tractor...
Compliance with the National Johne’s Management Plan (NJMP)
is now a requirement of Red Tractor Farm Assurance standards
due to come in force from October 1st 2019.
The appropriate management strategy needs to be identified through a discussion with a BCVA Accredited Johne’s Veterinary Advisor taking into account:
- Current prevalence of Johne’s on the farm
- Biosecurity risk associated with the farm
- Biocontainment risk associated with the farm
- Aspiration of the farm
As a result, a copy of the NJMP Declaration, completed and signed by a BCVA Accredited Johne’s Veterinary Advisor, must be available at the time of the annual review.
