NAHMS Goat 2019

The National Animal Health Monitoring System (NAHMS), a nonregulatory unit of USDA-APHIS-VS, is developing its Goat 2019 study. NAHMS recently conducted a brief on-line survey and greatly appreciates the input from those who completed the survey. NAHMS conducted the survey to:

  • Find out what you consider to be the most important health issues facing the goat industry,
  • Help identify the critical information needs regarding health management practices used in the U.S. goat industry, and
  • Ask your opinion on how we can encourage goat producers to participate in the Goat 2019 study.

NAHMS will use survey results to develop the information objectives that will shape the NAHMS study.
