NAHMS recognizes the last two years have been difficult for the swine industry and would like to provide an additional opportunity for producers to be included in the Swine 2021 Large Enterprise study.
Initial response to the Phase 1 survey request was low and will impact NAHMS' ability to make national estimates of Swine health, production and disease preparedness (e.g., biosecurity measures) for the swine industry, swine industry stakeholders and policy makers. National disease preparedness estimates are of particularly importance now with the threat of African Swine Fever so near to the U.S. mainland. We are asking producers to reconsider participation in Phase 1 and subsequently Phase 2 of the Swine 2021 Large Enterprise study.
Contacts by NASS will take place from October through December 2021. Please respond, if contacted by NASS, and take this opportunity to help tell the story of the U.S. swine industry. If you have additional questions or are a swine producer who was selected to be a part of the study and have not yet been contacted by NASS, please call 1-888-424-7828 and mention your interest in participating in the NAHMS Swine 2021 Large Enterprise study.
In light of the substantial market disruptions due to COVID-19, the original timelines for the National Animal Health Monitoring System's (NAHMS) Swine 2020 Study were revised. The study took place in 2021.
The NAHMS Swine 2021 study will focus and report on two distinct U.S. swine populations. The Large Enterprise segment of the study will take an in-depth look at swine operations with 1,000 or more pigs and will take place between June 2021 and Spring of 2022. The Small Enterprise segment of the study will concentrate on swine operations with fewer than 1,000 pigs and will take place between June and July 2021.
Both segments of the Swine 2021 study will provide participants, industry, academia, trading partners, and animal-health officials with valuable information on the Nation’s swine population. This information will also serve as a basis for education and research related to swine health and management.
Summary estimates from the study’s Large Enterprise segment will provide insights on how the majority of U.S. pigs are produced, their health status, and veterinary or biosecurity measures taken to maintain their health.
Summary estimates from the study’s Small Enterprise segment will reveal any changes in this more traditional part of the U.S. swine industry. Objectives of the Small Enterprise segment include estimating the use of newer husbandry technologies being adopted by smaller U.S. swine operations and providing information on the growing niche-market products these operations produce.
As with the four previous NAHMS swine studies, NAHMS Swine 2012 was national in scope, collaborative in nature, and voluntary. Data collected during the study were strictly confidential and used to generate scientifically based and statistically valid national estimates, to be used for education, research, and policy development.
