SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: National Animal Health Monitoring System; Health Management on U.S. Feedlots 2020 Study. OMB Control Number: 0579–0079. Type of Request: Reinstatement of an information collection. Abstract: Under the Animal Health Protection Act (7 U.S.C. 8301 et seq.), the Secretary of Agriculture is authorized to protect the health of the livestock, poultry, and aquaculture populations in the United States by preventing the introduction and interstate spread of serious diseases and pests of livestock and for eradicating such diseases from the United States when feasible. This authority has been designated to the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS). In connection with this mission, APHIS operates the National Animal Health Monitoring System (NAHMS), which collects, on a national basis, statistically valid and scientifically sound data on the prevalence and economic importance of livestock, poultry, and aquaculture disease risk factors. NAHMS studies have evolved into a collaborative industry and government initiative to help determine the most effective means of preventing and controlling diseases of livestock. APHIS is the only agency responsible for collecting data on livestock health. Participation in any NAHMS study is voluntary, and data are confidential. APHIS plans to conduct the Health Management on U.S. Feedlots 2020 Study as part of an ongoing series of NAHMS studies on the U.S. livestock population. This study will support the following study objectives: • Describe health management practices on cattle feedlots; FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 • Estimate the prevalence of producer-reported common feedlot cattle diseases; • Describe antimicrobial use and stewardship practices; • Describe attitudes and perceptions of feedlot producers about antimicrobial use, antimicrobial stewardship, and the Veterinary Feed Directive; and • Describe trends in feedlot cattle health management practices and producer-reported common feedlot cattle diseases. The study will consist of two phases. In Phase I, the National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) will contact selected feedlot producers to collect operational level data and consent to be contacted for the next phase of the study. NASS data collectors will contact producers by telephone to schedule a personal interview to complete the initial questionnaire with the help of an enumerator. The enumerators will also attempt to obtain consent from the producer to be contacted for participation in Phase II of the study. In Phase II, APHIS data collectors will contact consenting respondents to administer the second questionnaire via personal interview. APHIS will analyze the information collected in both phases of this study to predict or detect national and regional trends of feedlot cattle health; update national and regional production measures for producer, veterinary, and industry reference; and provide factual information on antimicrobial use and stewardship. We are asking the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to approve our use of these information collection activities for 3 years. The purpose of this notice is to solicit comments from the public (as well as affected agencies) concerning our information collection. These comments will help us: (1) Evaluate whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) Evaluate the accuracy of our estimate of the burden of the collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who E:\FR\FM\08OCN1.SGM 08OCN1 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 195 / Tuesday, October 8, 2019 / Notices are to respond, through use, as appropriate, of automated, electronic, mechanical, and other collection technologies; e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses. Estimate of burden: The public burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 0.47 hours per response. Respondents: Feedlot producers. Estimated annual number of respondents: 5,413. Estimated annual number of responses per respondent: 1.7. Estimated annual number of responses: 9,016. Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 4,202 hours. (Due to averaging, the total annual burden hours may not equal the product of the annual number of responses multiplied by the reporting burden per response.) All responses to this notice will be summarized and included in the request for OMB approval. All comments will also become a matter of public record.

(Tractors and Forestry Machines); Victoria, Texas The Calhoun/Victoria Foreign Trade Zone, Inc., grantee of FTZ 155, submitted a notification of proposed production activity to the FTZ Board on behalf of Caterpillar, Inc. (Caterpillar) located in Victoria, Texas. The notification conforming to the requirements of the regulations of the FTZ Board (15 CFR 400.22) was received on September 27, 2019. Caterpillar already has authority to produce hydraulic track-type excavators and related fabricated frame assemblies within FTZ 155. The current request would add finished products and foreign-status materials/components to the scope of authority. Pursuant to 15 CFR 400.14(b), additional FTZ authority would be limited to the specific foreignstatus materials/components and specific finished products described in the submitted notification (as described VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:50 Oct 07, 2019 Jkt 250001 below) and subsequently authorized by the FTZ Board. Production under FTZ procedures could exempt Caterpillar from customs duty payments on the foreign-status materials/components used in export production. On its domestic sales, for the foreign-status materials/components noted below and in the existing scope of authority, Caterpillar would be able to choose the duty rates during customs entry procedures that apply to tracktype tractors and forestry machines (duty free). Caterpillar would be able to avoid duty on foreign-status components which become scrap/waste. Customs duties also could possibly be deferred or reduced on foreign-status production equipment. The materials/components sourced from abroad include: Oil lubricant; plastic hose assemblies; cork sheets; cork gaskets for fuel tanks; cork plugs; paper certificates; paper envelopes; steel clamps for external mirrors; steel tooling and dies; steel installation crimping tools; steel brackets; flexible exhaust tubes for cooling; steel brackets for wire harnesses; steel plates for wire harnesses; steel plates for whole frame assemblies; heel assemblies; steel frame assembly blocks; steel covers for frame assemblies; undercarriage tracks; walkway assemblies for frame of excavators; steel sheets for frame assemblies; tube assemblies for grease lines; steel doors; radiator shrouds; boom assemblies (whole boom); guard assemblies for frame of excavators; steel pins; ignition systems; horns for excavator cabs; wiper blades for excavator cabs; lighting for excavator cabs; horn assemblies; wiper blade assemblies; mounted cameras; electronic navigational displays; alarm assemblies for rollover/backup protection; guard plates; steel connectors; inertial measurement unit navigational sensors; breakout electrical testing sensors; electrical sensors; and, boot scrapers (steel with plastic bristles) (duty rate ranges from duty-free to 5.3%). The request indicates that certain materials/components are subject to special duties Section 301 of the Trade Act of 1974 (Section 301), depending on the country of origin. The applicable Section 301 decisions require subject merchandise to be admitted to FTZs in privileged foreign status (19 CFR 146.41). Public comment is invited from interested parties. Submissions shall be addressed to the Board’s Executive Secretary and sent to: ftz@trade.gov. The closing period for their receipt is November 18, 2019. PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 53673 A copy of the notification will be available for public inspection in the ‘‘Reading Room’’ section of the Board’s website, which is accessible via www.trade.gov/ftz.

    APHIS plans to conduct the Health Management on U.S. Feedlots 2020 
Study as part of an ongoing series of NAHMS studies on the U.S. 
livestock population. This study will support the following study 
objectives:
     Describe health management practices on cattle feedlots;
     Estimate the prevalence of producer-reported common 
feedlot cattle diseases;
     Describe antimicrobial use and stewardship practices;
     Describe attitudes and perceptions of feedlot producers 
about antimicrobial use, antimicrobial stewardship, and the Veterinary 
Feed Directive; and
     Describe trends in feedlot cattle health management 
practices and producer-reported common feedlot cattle diseases.
    The study will consist of two phases. In Phase I, the National 
Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) will contact selected feedlot 
producers to collect operational level data and consent to be contacted
