2019 NAHMS Goat Study
Anthelmintic resistance testing will be part of the 2019 NAHMS Goat Study. In a cooperative agreement between Louisiana State University and USDA APHIS, the study will evaluate the use of anthelmintics on US goat operations and the prevalence of anthelmintic resistance in goat parasite populations in the US.
The study will consist of questionnaires and multiple biological components, with the GIN component expected to be the largest incentive for participating operations. A total of approximately 700 goat operations will be targeted with about 4,500 goats expected to be sampled.
