Livestock and Poultry Disease

Last Modified: April 10, 2024

We protect against diseases that could harm the health, quality, or marketability of our Nation's agricultural animals. With a vast network of partners, our Veterinary Services team helps U.S. producers prevent, control, and when possible, eliminate these diseases from our country.

APHIS also conducts surveillance and research on diseases and pathogens of concern in wildlife. Visit our National Wildlife Disease Program and National Wildlife Research Center to learn more.
