Johne's Disease Awareness Evening Events

LIC and Anexa Veterinary Services are teaming up with local dairy farmer Brendon O’Leary to provide information on managing Johne’s disease (JD) within your herd.


Brendon will be sharing his first-hand experience of managing JD on his farm and how he has dealt with the challenges throughout his journey. As part of his story, Anexa Veterinary Services will be providing advice and guidance regarding the on-farm management practices required in the control of JD on farm.

In addition to this, LIC will be providing the latest statistics on the prevalence of JD (based on the LIC dataset) as well as the diagnostic testing options available to dairy farmers to detect the disease.

These events will be run as informal evenings and a complementary drink and a Wagyu BBQ will be provided.

Register here to go into the draw to win a free LIC JD test on herd test milk samples for up to 500 animals.
