The Bovine Respiratory Disease (BRD) NC-1027 Committee is asking dairy farmers for their participation in a survey on risk factors and limitations associated with BRD.

Bovine respiratory disease complex (BRDC, "shipping fever" "pneumonia") continues to be the most common health problem facing the cattle industry today. An opportunity has arisen to develop a proposal for a long term bovine respiratory disease research and education program. 

The committee strongly feels that projects such as this should reflect current real-world needs of today's cattle industry. The committee wants this program to reflect the current needs and desires of the industry and is requesting your participation in this survey. Click here to complete the short survey.

For more information on the committee's research efforts, contact Chris Chase, Department of Veterinary Science at South Dakota State University (605) 688-5652 office or e-mail
