As required for enforcement of the Animal Welfare Act, veterinary medical officers from the U.S. Department of Agriculture regularly conduct routine, unannounced inspections of facilities that house animals for research. In August of 2021, USDA inspectors conducted a routine review of animals, facilities and associated records at the U.S. Dairy Forage Research Center.
USDA inspectors found the center to be in compliance with the AWA.
