USDA Surveying Bison Industry for Future Study

October 29, 2020

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) National Animal Health Monitoring System (NAHMS) is developing its second national study of the U.S. bison industry for 2022. The department is inviting stakeholders to take a brief online survey to help NAHMS focus the research and build a study that is the most beneficial to industry.

In addition to helping USDA identify key bison health and management issues, stakeholder participation will bridge existing information gaps by exploring stakeholders' new and ongoing concerns. Stakeholder inputs will assure that the NAHMS Bison 2022 study will be focused on primary matters affecting the bison industry.
