Johne's disease

  • Johnes disease is an infectious disease of cattle caused by infection with a bacteria called Mycobacterium Avium subspecies Paratuberculosis (MAP).
  • Because of the long incubation period, most infected animals show clinical signs as adults, with weight loss and scour causing debility and eventually death.
  • The major economic losses are caused by the subclinical effects including poor production, infertility and premature culling.
