U.S. Department of Agriculture, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service Company Profile

11:17 EDT 19th September 2017 | BioPortfolio

The Animal and Plant Health inspection Service (APHIS) is responsible for protecting and promoting U.S. agricultural health, administering the Animal Welfare Act, and carrying out wildlife damage management activities.The APHIS mission is an integral part of U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) efforts to provide the Nation with safe and affordable food. Without APHIS protecting America's animal and plant resources from agricultural pests and diseases, threats to our food supply and to our Nation's economy would be enormous. For example, if Mediterranean fruit fly and Asian longhorned beetle, two major agricultural pests, were left unchecked by APHIS, production and marketing losses of several billions of dollars would occur annually in this country. And, if APHIS was not on the job as the first line of defense, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, animal diseases like foot-and-mouth disease and bovine spongiform encephalopathy (mad cow disease) could devastate our livestock industry and our food supply. All these plant and animal pests and disease threats could cost billions of dollars in lost domestic and international markets and have a huge impact on U.S. consumers, but APHIS has aggressively and successfully worked to prevent and respond to these situations.
