Animal Industry Bureau

Animal Health Alert Network
Dr. Jeff Kaisand

The Animal Health Alert Network (AHAN) is Iowa’s version of a nation-wide project designed to
improve outreach and communication channels to commercial and non-commercial livestock and
poultry owners. In Iowa, the project is being accomplished through collaborative work between the
State Vet office and ISU Extension and Outreach.

This project focuses on building a network of feed retailers who agree to receive animal health
messages from the State Vet, and pass this information along to their customers via various methods
including mass e-mails and posting the messages in their feed stores. This method of addressing
Animal Health Alert messages on the local level will enhance delivery of information from the State
Vet to livestock owners, particularly the owners of non-commercial herds and flocks who may not be
connected to current information channels established by commodity groups and veterinary clinics.
