NAHMS Goat Studies


NAHMS Goat 2019

In order to protect the health and safety of producers, data providers, data collectors and lab staff, no more biologic samples will be collected for National Animal Health Monitoring System’s Goat 2019 Study. Because laboratories shifted to essential personnel only, results for producer samples already submitted will be delayed. The timeline for receiving delayed test results is currently unknown, but we will continue to update this page as more information becomes available. Thank you for your understanding.

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.
