The National 5 year Management Plan for OJD is not being extended past June 2018. However, producers still have access to all the current tools for managing OJD such as vaccination, Sheep Health Declarations, SheepMAP, abattoir testing through the National Sheep Health Monitoring Project and Regional Biosecurity Plans. These are through the Sheep Health Project at Animal Health Australia. Producers must also still comply with all state-based regulations.
