Noemi shares work from her masters thesis about Johne’s disease in cattle comparing analysis from New Zealand and Germany.
Some key themes from her work include:
- calving management needs to be more hygienic – ‘healthy’ milk is an essential
- culled animals should not end up “in the hole”
- clinically suspicious animals need to be examined post mortem (tissue sample)
