Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

Health officials across the U.S. and all over the world are working hard to combat COVID-19. Veterinary professionals are receiving questions from their clients and their teams, and the TAHC is pleased to be able to share and provide credible information and resources to assist with responses to those questions. Please find our veterinary resources and guidance on the TAHC COVID-19 webpage.

Veterinary Medicine Loan Repayment Program (VMLRP)

As part of the USDAs National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) Veterinary Medicine Loan Repayment Program (VMLRP), individuals may submit nominations to the TAHC for areas they believe have a shortage of veterinarians that work in food animal medicine, rural private practice, or public practice. Areas selected as having a qualified veterinary shortage may benefit from the VMLRP by having a practicing veterinarian locate to the area or remain in the area in exchange for the opportunity to have up to $25,000 per year of student loan debt repaid for up to three years of service.

TAHC will accept nominations until 5:00 p.m. on Friday, October 29, 2021.

Animal Disease Traceability

Animal disease traceability (ADT) or knowing where diseased and at-risk animals are, where they've been, and when is important to ensuring a rapid response when animal disease events take place. Official identification and movement documentation is an essential part of tracing livestock when disease is found.

For years, veterinarians practicing regulatory work have used metal NUES tags and metal brucellosis calfhood vaccination tags. As the cattle industry progresses so does the technology used in routine operations.
