TASAH – Johne’s disease Training

About the programme

The Irish Johne’s Control Programme (IJCP) represents a significant step for the Irish cattle industries in developing a long-term approach to the control of Johne’s disease.

The IJCP provides a package of effective and on-going disease prevention and containment practices to control the spread of Johne’s disease.  These practices provide a pathway for test-negative herds to guard against entry of infection and to demonstrate progress towards an improved herd assurance against Johne’s disease, and a pathway for test-positive herds towards reducing the spread and effects of infection.

All dairy farmers are encouraged to register with the IJCP. The IJCP is also available to beef herds.

For trained AVPs, there are two Johne’s disease TASAH training events scheduled for September, the details of which are set out below.  If you are an AVP and you have not received notification of this training, please contact the AHI office.

14th September                              Charleville Park Hotel, Charleville                                         

17th September                               Killeshin Hotel, Portlaoise                                                                                        

Note: On-farm risk assessments funded through TASAH may only be delivered by Approved Veterinary Practitioners who have undertaken the required TASAH Johne’s disease training.
