Did you know ticks were found on 1 in 7 equids in the 2015 USDA National Animal Health Monitoring System (NAHMS) study? Ticks can transmit serious diseases, including Lyme disease and equine piroplasmosis. Would you be interested in knowing if equine tick infestations have changed in the last 10 years? What other information would you like to know about the equine industry?
Please provide input to help NAHMS develop its study objectives for the next NAHMS Equine study by completing this 10-minute survey: https://tinyurl.com/22yfr6cu. The survey will be open through October 1, 2023, so act soon to help us identify information gaps in the equine industry.
Results of previous NAHMS studies of the equine industry, including our most recent study from 2015, are available at: link.
This is the second and final reminder to fill out the survey. Inquiries regarding the survey or NAHMS equine studies may be sent to NAHMS@usda.gov.
