The NAHMS program includes periodic national commodity studies to investigate current issues and examine general health and management practices used on farms. These studies are driven by industry and stakeholder interest, and collect information that is not available from any other source.
Activities will include testing of sera from lambs for antibodies to Toxoplasma gondii by using the modified agglutination test (MAT) during the National Animal Health Monitoring System (NAHMA) Sheep 2011 study.
