The National Animal Health Monitoring System (NAHMS), a nonregulatory division of USDA–APHIS–VS, in collaboration with the National Agricultural Statistics Service is planning for the Equine 2015 study, NAHMS third national study of the equine industry. The survey is scheduled to begin in summer 2015.
Your input is essential if we are to address specific needs and information gaps in the equine industry. Stakeholder input will be collected throughout the remainder of 2013 to help determine the objectives of the study. What information would you like to know about the equine industry and what would prompt equine owners to participate in this national study?
You can provide input on specific information that would be valuable by completing a 5-minute survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/NAHMS_Equine2015_I. Surveys must be completed by December 31, 2013.
Results of previous NAHMS studies of the equine industry are available at: http://nahms.aphis.usda.govJosie.Traub-Dargatz@aphis.usda.gov
