Johne’s Disease: Other Species
Johne's disease can strike any ruminant including domestic and wild species. Other species besides ruminants can also be infected although most do not show signs of disease and are not thought to be a significant source of infection for ruminants.
The Johne’s Information Center has extensive information about Johne’s disease specific to several different species.
The University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine Veterinary Continuing Education website offers narrated presentations online concerning Johne’s disease in different species. Producer modules are available free of charge. There is a fee to register for veterinary modules.
For more information on Johne’s disease in species other than cattle, see our Resources section. The following booklets are also available:
