USDA to launch national equine study this spring

The U.S. Department of Agriculture is launching a new study in May that focuses on the country's equine industry. Dubbed "Equine 2015," the study is a follow-up to the agency's National Animal Health Monitoring Systems' previous reports on the industry conducted in 1998 and 2005. The agency is asking horse owners, industry experts and government officials for input to help define what the industry will need in the future. Seven objectives for the study have already been identified. Story
