Register of herds - JDCAP
JDCAP is a rigorously audited calf-rearing program designed to minimise the risk of spreading Johne's disease in cattle, should it be present, from adult cattle to the replacement calves reared within a dairy herd.
Calves raised under an accredited rearing system have a lower risk of having Johne's disease than non-accredited calves.
This register is provided by Agriculture Victoria as a service to those producers who are involved in JDCAP and may have cattle for sale, and for those producers who are seeking JDCAP reared cattle as herd replacements.

- the calf rearing practices on the vendor's property
- the number of cattle being purchased
- experience from previous purchases from the same source
- the impact that introducing animals infected with Johne's disease might have on your herd
- the risk that animals from that herd could introduce Johne's disease into your herd
