All Red Tractor Farm Assured dairy farms must be compliant with the National Johne's Management Plan (NJMP). The audit point is having a current signed NJMP declaration alongside the results of the testing stipulated as part of their control strategy.
Standard How you will be measured.
AH.c.2 Johne’s disease must be managed through the implementation of the National Johne’s Management Plan* • The appropriate strategy is identified through a discussion with a BCVA Accredited Johne’s Veterinary Advisor* taking into account:
• Current prevalence of Johne’s on the farm
• Biosecurity risk associated with the farm (eg buying in of stock)
• Biocontainment risk associated with the farm (eg risk of spread within the holding)
• Resources (capital and human)
• Aspiration of the farm (eg desire to eradicate Johne’s completely or simply contain the disease at manageable levels)
National Johne’s Management Plan Declaration*completed and signed by BCVA Accredited Johne’s Veterinary Advisor*
• National Johne’s Management Plan or equivalent scheme implemented as available (NJMP currently operational in Great Britain)
• Farms operating in Northern Ireland will have until Oct 2020 to comply with this standard, to ensure access to all of the required elements
