Johne’s Disease Vaccine for Sheep and Goats
Gudair® is a one shot for life vaccine that provides a vital tool to aid in the control of Ovine Johne’s disease (Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis) in sheep and goats
Vaccination of young animals with Gudair has been shown to reduce mortality due to OJD in infected flocks by up to 90%1.Vaccination also reduces the amount of OJD bacteria shed by up to 90%, reducing pasture contamination1. As such, vaccination provides a pivotal tool in the control of OJD in sheep and goats, particularly as management interventions used in other species are rarely practical in flocks.
