  • Johne’s (pronounced Yo-knees) disease is a chronic disease of severe, watery diarrhea, and weight loss in adult cattle caused by a bacterium. These bacteria are very hardy due to a protective cell wall that can withstand harsh conditions and allows survival for long periods in the environment. Once the bacteria gain entry into an animal, the organism lives permanently within the cells of the large intestine where it multiplies and is then “shed” in the feces in large numbers.
