USDA launches an H5N1 pilot program

USDA is launching a voluntary H5N1 Dairy Herd Status Pilot Program in select states to help producers monitor their cows and move cattle quickly as they test for Influenza A.

The voluntary program creates additional testing options for producers with herds testing negative for H5N1 for three weeks in a row. After getting negative results from a National Animal Health Laboratory Network facility, producers will be allowed to conduct weekly tests on bulk milk from the herd to confirm the status and be able to ship cows when they want without testing animals.
