Selected producers in 24 states will be asked for data regarding herd management, herd health and disease prevention practices. Some of selected producers will be asked if they’re willing to allow APHIS veterinarians on their farms to conduct further tests, according to Gene Danekas with the National Agriculture Statistics Service Missouri Office.

“What that does is it ties the study from the veterinary side back to the data that was given to NASS for management practices,” Danekas said to Brownfield in an interview, “and then they can make some heads or tails of all of this.”

The extra information will help veterinarians improve their practices, says Danekas.
