Research Assistant


Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis (MAP) causes a chronic, granulomatous enteritis in cattle, known as Johne’s disease (JD). This disease can cause significant economic losses via reduced milk yield, increased susceptibility to diseases such as mastitis, poor feed conversion and poor reproductive efficiency resulting in premature death or culling. These production losses make control of MAP an important issue for the Irish agricultural industry. In fact, a recent Delphi study carried out by Animal Health Ireland has ranked Johne’s disease as one of the most important diseases to the dairy industry in Ireland.
