Graham says that an important part of Johnes control is to reduce infection of the calf or calves by pasteurising colostrum and milk, and blood testing in beef cattle. Johne's Disease is a silent but deadly killer if not controlled in cattle herds. It's best to catch it early through regular testing, & monitoring of your dairy herd.  It is safer to be a closed herd or only buy in from high health status herds. When looking at the latest facts it's very surprising how much money is lost from having Johne's on your farm.
