About Regional Biosecurity areas and Ovine Johne's Disease

Ovine Johne's Disease (OJD) Regional Biosecurity Areas are made up of sheep producers, agents and our District Vets.

These groups were set up in response to the changes to the National OJD Management Plan 2013-2018.

In central west NSW there are currently Regional Biosecurity Areas - Coonabarabran, Coonamble and Nyngan districts.
