The National Johne’s Management Plan

The National Johne’s Management Plan (NJMP) was developed by the Action Group on Johne’s as an approach to be taken by the dairy industry of Great Britain to control and reduce the incidence of Johne’s disease in the dairy herd. The initiative has been delivered via two phases:

Phase 1 which ran from 1st April 2015 to 31st December 2017, primarily focused on education and engagement.

Phase 2 started in 2018 and is currently ongoing. The operational requirements of Phase 2 are that members of the NJMP require their associated farmers to obtain annually a signed declaration by a BCVA Johne’s Certified Veterinary Adviser that they will be implementing one of the six control strategies specified by the NJMP.
