THE sheep and wool industries have less than one week to have their say on the future management of ovine Johne's disease in Australia.
The national review, headed by WoolProducers Australia and Sheep Producers Australia, will close on Monday, March 12.
The current plan has used a range of tools, including abattoir monitoring, vaccination, the Sheep Health Declaration and the Market Assurance Program, to manage OJD and minimise its spread.
WPA policy director Amanda Olthof thanked those organisations and individuals who have already provided feedback.
"It's important that we receive feedback from the industry to ensure that our strategies, tools and resources are effective in reducing the prevalence of OJD in our national flock,” Ms Olthof said.
To have a say on the NOJDMP and its related tools, respond to the discussion paper at www.animalhealthaustralia.com.au.
