Cattle Health Surveillance

APHIS’ cattle health surveillance system provides protection to the U.S. cattle and bison herd from incursions of foreign, emerging, and certain endemic diseases that can cost billions of dollars in lost domestic and international market trade by quickly locating these diseases and limiting their spread.  This minimizes production losses and helps to maintain market viability.  Additionally, by conducting surveillance to find animal diseases, the system also verifies and documents for our international trading partners that certain diseases do not exist in the U.S. animal population.
