National kid rearing plans available

20 April 2016

Animal Health Australia (AHA) recently released the new National Kid Rearing Plan which is a series of documents which assist goat producers to reduce the risk of Johne’s disease spreading in their herd, whether or not the Johne’s disease status of their herd is known.

The objectives of the National Kid Rearing Plan are to:

  • Minimise the risk of kids becoming infected with Johne’s disease
  • Reduce contamination of the farm environment and farm products
  • Protect or improve their herd’s assurance rating by implementing measures to minimise the risk of spread of Johne’s disease to kids
  • Improve herd health
  • Enable owners of all goat herds to reduce the risk of caprine arthritis encephalitis (CAE) spread through hygienic kid rearing.
