2021 USDA Feedlot Study on Cattle Health and Management The United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) National Animal Health Monitoring System (NAHMS) is conducting a national study focusing on cattle health and management on U.S. feedlots with at least 50 head. Representatives from the National Agricultural Statistics Service will administer a questionnaire to participating operations from March through April 2021.

Some of the goals of this study include:
· Help animal health officials assess disease-preparedness strengths and vulnerabilities;
· Help policymakers and industry stakeholders make informed decisions regarding feedlot cattle health and management;
· Identify research and development needs;
· Enable economic analyses of the health and productivity of U.S. feedlots;
· Identify educational needs and opportunities related to the health of feedlot cattle;
· Provide a benchmark on important feedlot cattle health management practices to inform quality assurance programs;
· Provide transparent, credible, and independent information on U.S. feedlot practices.
