    Beware of letting your animals drink from creeks and ponds. We rotational grazed our animals on rented land that had a creek and pond that the animals drank out of and we ended up getting Johnes in our herd. We investigated and found out a farm that was along the creek had Johnes so alot of of our young stock born on the property ended up with Johnes but the ones born on our property did not have it. We worked with the State Vet to get it out of our herd but it was devestating to our herd we lost some good animals. Johnes does spread through water. So just be careful.
