Environmental survivability of Mycobacterium avium subsp. Paratuberculosis (Mptb) on northern grazing properties

Indicative Funding
$477,539 over 3 years
Bovine Johne's Disease (BJD) has recently been diagnosed for the first time in Queensland beef cattle herds. This project will examine (1) survival times for causative bacteria in tropical environments (2) whether diagnostic tests can detect live (infectious) bacteria, and (3) the extent to which relatives of the bacteria causing BJD occur in the environment and potentially interfere with diagnostic tests. Collectively, out results will assist with management of the BJD outbreak so that it can be contained without imposing unnecessary operational and financial impacts on the beef cattle industry of northern Queensland.
