The National Animal Health Monitoring System wants to hear from dairy producers and their advisers regarding the next national dairy health study.

Two previous NAHMS studies — released in 1992 and 1996 — have provided a baseline for health and management practices in U.S. dairy herds. In the past, these studies tackled issues such as bovine viral diarrhea, Johne’s disease, hairy foot warts, and cryptosporidium.

“We ask those allied with the dairy industry to help us identify critical information gaps for the Dairy 2002 study so that we can continue to focus our efforts on the issues of greatest importance,” says Brian McCluskey, veterinarian and dairy specialist with the USDA’s Center for Epidemiology and Animal Health.

Producers and advisers who are interested in providing input can call (800) 545-USDA and answer a series of questions regarding their priorities for the national study. Or, you can visit the Web site: and then click on “Dairy Cattle.”

NAHMS will receive input until April 15.
