Dairy farmers are being asked to answer a short survey on Johne’s control to help drive forward the national Johne’s management plan (NJMP).

The eight-question survey, which is anonymous, aims to find out about farmers’ attitudes to Johne’s control in their own herds.

The results of the survey will be shared at Dairy UK’s Johne’s conference at Sixways Stadium, Worcester, on 7 February 2016.

It is the fourth annual Johne’s conference held by the National Action Group on Johne’s (NAGJ) – a coalition of vets dedicated to driving the progress of the voluntary programme first launched in March 2015.

At this year’s conference the second phase of the initiative will be revealed and the focus for 2017 will be on greater vet and farmer engagement with the NJMP.

Farmers and other supply chain workers will also be able to learn from farmers who are successfully tackling the disease.

More information including how to book a place can be found on Dairy UK’s website.
