Scientists want to know where they should focus their mastitis research efforts. Offer your input by taking this survey from USDA’s Agricultural Research Service. Input is requested from farmers, nutritionists, veterinarians and researchers.
These types of surveys determine the direction and funding of animal research. Although the wording of this survey is specific for ARS internal research, this same survey will be use by the National Institute of Food and Agriculture program leaders as well, say researchers at the National Animal Disease Center in Ames, Iowa. The last survey in 2006 had almost no dairy responses and is a significant factor in the reduced funding to dairy research in the last few years.
Once you’ve taken the survey, pass this link to others in the dairy field.
