"Highest quality diagnostic laboratory support service for:
Livestock and poultry disease control, enhancement of livestock and
poultry health management, protection from diseases common to animals
and humans, and recognition and dissemination of new knowledge."
The mission of the Colorado Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory
System is to provide timely, accurate and pertinent animal disease
diagnostic services and educational outreach to veterinarians, animal
industries and animal interests.
The Reference Andrology Laboratory provides complete testing of neat, cooled and
frozen-thawed semen from mammalian and avian species. These services are frequently used by practitioners
and studs as third-party quality control assessments.
The laboratory strives to perform objective, validated techniques for basic spermiogram parameters
of sample volume, motility, morphology, and concentration. Semen extender analysis and microbiological
testing of the extended semen is also offered.
The USAHA works with the state and federal animal health officials,
veterinarians, livestock producers, national livestock and poultry
organizations, research scientists, the extension service and seven
foreign countries to control livestock disease in the USA. Visit their
website to obtain the latest information about livestock health issues
and the activities of USAHA.
