NAHMS Feedlot Studies


NAHMS Health Management on U.S. Feedlots 2020

In order to protect the health and safety of producers, data providers and data collectors, the study approach and timelines for the National Animal Health Monitoring System’s Feedlot 2020 Study may be revised. We are actively exploring alternatives to ensure that this important information is collected while protecting the health of all involved. We will continue to update this page as more information becomes available. Thank you for your understanding.

From September 2020 through March 2021, the USDA’s National Animal Health Monitoring System (NAHMS), in collaboration with the National Agricultural Statistics Service, will conduct a national study focusing on cattle health and management on U.S. feedlots with at least 50 head. The NAHMS Health Management on U.S. Feedlots, 2020 study is designed to provide a snapshot of current feedlot cattle health management practices. The information collected will also allow for the analysis of trends in specific topics related to cattle health, based on previous NAHMS feedlot studies.
