Washington State University's Veterinary Medicine Extension wants to know more about health event record-keeping and evaluation on U.S. dairies.
Its office will be surveying dairy farmers and veterinarians to learn more about how disease and treatment data are recorded, used and valued. Mail and on-line surveys will be sent in early June to Washington and Idaho dairies.
Extension officials are also eager to hear from dairies in other states.
"Please plan to participate to help us better serve the dairy industry through the development of more efficient health data record-keeping and evaluation options,” says Extension coordinator Sandy Poisson.
For more information or to request a survey, please contact Poisson at (509) 335-8225 or email@example.com, or Dr. John Wenz at (509) 335-0773 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
