The Johne's Risk Assessment and Management Plan (RAMP) is a nationally standardized system in the U.S. This app converts that same RAMP into a user friendly iPad app allowing easy, paperless, herd scoring and generation of a herd management plan. RAMP training is a component of the Johne's Certified Veterinarian program available at: https://ce.vetmed.wisc.edu/Johnes_Disease
The purpose of the Johne's Risk Assessor app is to assist veterinarians and their clients with the implementation of a standard Risk Assessment and Management Plan (RAMP). The goal is to reduce or eliminate risks for the introduction and/or spread of Johne's disease. Implementation of management practices aimed at Johne's disease control will increase herd biosecurity and reduce the risk for transmission of other fecal-oral transmitted pathogens. Once inside the App, the user can select the Dairy version or the Beef cattle version.
The app consists of seven tabbed views. These are ordered in a progressive manner.
History = Herd information and history
Calf = Calving to pre-wean
Heifer = Post-wean to bred Heifer
Adult/Replacement = Adults and replacements purchases
Summary = Herd score distribution based on the six areas
Recommendations = Recommendations for the herd based on the assessment
PDF viewer = Easily viewed pdf of the risk assessment
Herd assessment should proceed through the tabbed views starting with the History tab and stepping sequentially to the right. The stepwise process of performing the assessment will disclose a number of management choices that may be utilized to effectively reduce identified risks. The final content of the plan is ultimately the decision of the owner and the veterinarian and should support the owner's goals, reduce the impact of Johne's and other diseases, and include a testing scheme. The plan should be mindful of all health and management priorities and blend with ongoing biosecurity efforts.
Added the ability to do a Beef Farm RAMP. User can choose to do Dairy or Beef on the first tab. RAMP automatically updates.
