Risk Factors for Johne's Disease in Ontario Dairy Herds
Keywords:Johne's disease, management, prevention, control, risk factors
Treatment of Johne's disease is not efficacious or economical for a commercial dairy herd. Efforts should instead be placed into management of the disease. However, prevention and control of Johne's disease can only be achieved if the risk factors are clearly identified. The objective of this study is to evaluate herd-level risk factors associated with the prevalence of Johne's disease in Ontario dairy herds.
