The National Animal Health Monitoring System (NAHMS) Program Unit conducts national studies on the health and health management of United States domestic livestock and poultry populations. More about NAHMS.
NAHMS recognizes this has been a tough year for the livestock industries and would like to provide an additional opportunity for producers to be included in the Feedlot Health 2021 study.
Initial response to the Phase 2 survey request was low and could impact NAHMS' ability to make national estimates for Feedlot health and production. We are asking producers to reconsider participation in Phase 2 of the Feedlot Health 2021 survey so the valuable information collected from feedlot operations can be used to help support the feedlot industry.
Contacts will take place from 7/19/2021 through 7/30/2021. Please respond, if contacted by NASS, and take this opportunity to help tell the story of feedlot operations in the U.S. If you have additional questions or are a feedlot producer who was selected to be a part of the study, have not yet been contacted by NASS, but are interested in participating please call 1-888-424-7828 and mention your interest in participating in the NAHMS Feedlot Health 2021 study.

NAHMS is committed to protecting the confidentiality of the information provided by participants in NAHMS studies. Only those collecting the data know the identity of respondents. No name or contact information is associated with individual data, and no data are reported in a way that could reveal the identity of a participant, as data are presented only in an aggregate manner.
To further protect respondents’ information, NAHMS applied for, and in March 2012 received, recognition as a statistical unit under the Confidential Information Protection and Statistical Efficiency Act (CIPSEA). Enacted in 2002, CIPSEA provides a way for Federal agencies to collect statistical information and protect its confidentiality using the force of law.
The specific data protections given to a NAHMS study participant's data is described in detail in informed consent forms administered during the study. Additional information regarding NAHMS' CIPSEA status as well as annual CIPSEA reports are available below.
