The Australian Johne’s Disease Market Assurance Programs for sheep (SheepMAP) is a voluntary program for producers that aims to identify, protect and promote flocks that are at low risk of being infected with Johne’s disease. Producers can minimise the risk of purchasing infected sheep by sourcing replacement animals from MAP assessed flocks.
SheepMAP is currently being reviewed and consultation is now open. All producers are encouraged to complete the below survey. The survey will take approximately 15 minutes.
If you would like to further take part in the review please contact Joe Lane, phone: 0415 269 934 or email: Joe.Lane@ghd.com

To take part in this review you can complete a survey OR provide a submission. Further details can be found at here.
