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.
In light of the substantial market disruptions due to COVID-19, the original study plans for the National Animal Health Monitoring System's (NAHMS) Health Management on U.S. Feedlots 2020 Study were revisited and the study was delayed until 2021.
From March through August 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 2021 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.
