National Animal Health Reporting System

The National Animal Health Reporting System (NAHRS) is the only comprehensive reporting system for World Organization for Animal Health (OIE)-reportable diseases in the United States.  Under NAHRS, participating State animal health officials report monthly on the occurrence of confirmed OIE-reportable diseases in U.S. livestock, poultry, and aquaculture species. NAHRS is an important component of the National Animal Health Surveillance System. By providing timely summary-level information on animal health status to our trading partners, NAHRS helps protect the U.S. share of the global market for animals and animal products.

Information about the program, objectives, participating States, and the NAHRS Steering Committee.
