Ovine Johnes Disease (OJD)

Ovine Johne’s disease (OJD) is an incurable, infectious wasting disease of sheep that can result in significant economic losses on infected farms due to sheep deaths and lost production in meat, lambs and wool.

Australia has a long-term national management plan to prevent and control OJD – a plan developed and funded by the sheepmeat and wool industries.
