When used appropriately, antibiotics play a major role in restoring the health of cows, calves, and heifers on dairy farms. That’s the very reason that the National Dairy FARM Program has partnered to support Kansas State University in developing an antibiotic stewardship use survey for dairy producers. Take this important antibiotic use survey by following this link: kstate.qualtrics.com

Like other livestock industries, the dairy industry is under growing pressure to improve transparency surrounding antibiotic use. The input we receive from dairy farmers via this survey will serve as a valuable resource for university researchers who are collaborating with FARM in discussions on national policies related to antibiotic use on dairy farms.

Ultimately, the purpose of this short survey . . . which includes 12 questions that take about nine minutes to answer . . . is to better understand dairy producer perceptions of antibiotic stewardship and their willingness to contribute to a dairy antibiotic use database.

Most importantly, the survey is anonymous and provides you with an opportunity to influence dairy antibiotic use monitoring in the U.S.
