Welcome to the Web Page of USDA, APHIS, Veterinary Services, for the State of Alabama.
Alabama’s agriculture industry feeds millions and provides a livelihood for thousands of farmers, processors, retailers, and others. Alabama ranks third nationally in broiler production and 14th nationally in total egg production. Cattle are produced in every county and cattle production represents a $2 billion industry in Alabama. As of January 1, 2006, the Alabama cattle inventory totaled 1.28 million head. In 2006, Alabama agriculture industry generated more than $4 billion in sales. This industry, however, is subject to constant threat from diseases that can destroy herds, wipe out profits, and endanger the health of the consumer. An important responsibility of Veterinary Services is to prevent, control, and eradicate livestock and poultry diseases. USDA, Veterinary Services in Alabama and across the nation participate in organized animal disease eradication and control programs.
