NAHMS Swine Study Moving to 2021

The National Animal Health Monitoring System (NAHMS) Swine Study, originally scheduled to begin this summer, has been postponed to 2021.

The NAHMS Swine Study focuses on the health, health practices and biosecurity employed by swine producers in this country. These confidential national studies have been occurring every 5-8 years for 30 years. National estimates of this type have found use in trade negotiations and providing objective information to the swine industry, policymakers and researchers of all types.
