USAHA (United States Animal Health Association) Proceedings

The United States Animal Health Association (USAHA), the nation's animal health forum for over a century, is a science-based, non-profit, voluntary organization. Its 1,100 members are state and federal animal health officials, national allied organizations, regional representatives, and individual members. USAHA works with state and federal governments, universities, veterinarians, livestock producers, national livestock and poultry organizations, research scientists, the extension service and several foreign countries to control livestock diseases in the United States. USAHA represents all 50 states, 4 foreign countries and 34 allied groups serving health, technical and consumer markets.

USAHA's mission is to protect animal and public health by:

  • Serving as a national forum for communication and coordination concerning:
    • disease eradication

    • emergency preparedness
    • emergency response and recovery
    • emerging diseases
    • food safety
    • public health
    • animal welfare
    • international trade
