The U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) is pleased to announce the launch of our Facebook page, which will compliment our social media presence on Twitter and LinkedIn and offer additional opportunities to share information and engage with our stakeholders.
APHIS' mission is to protect the health and value of American agriculture and natural resources. From ensuring an abundant and affordable food supply, safeguarding air travel against wildlife-related accidents, and sheltering household pets from harm during a disaster, to protecting the trees in our forests and communities, APHIS' work touches people's lives in a multitude of ways.
APHIS continuously seeks new ways to accomplish our work and improve upon the services we provide. We are committed to using a variety of tools to keep stakeholders informed and allow industry to move at the speed of commerce and keep up with demand for agricultural commodities.
USDA touches the lives of all Americans each day in so many positive ways. In the Biden-Harris Administration, USDA is transforming America's food system with a greater focus on more resilient local and regional food production, fairer markets for all producers, ensuring access to safe, healthy and nutritious food in all communities, building new markets and streams of income for farmers and producers using climate smart food and forestry practices, making historic investments in infrastructure and clean energy capabilities in rural America, and committing to equity across the Department by removing systemic barriers and building a workforce more representative of America.

USDA is an equal opportunity provider, employer, and lender.
