Colorado State University is conducting a research survey to describe current industry practices regarding the transportation of dairy or dairy x beef calves on milk. We want to hear from anyone making decisions about the transportation and/or receiving of dairy or dairy x beef calves on milk. That includes producers, owners, operators, or managers on dairies, calf ranches, heifer-raising facilities, and veal operations, as well as transportation drivers. Participants in the research must be over 18 years of age.

The main goals of this study are to better understand current industry practices for transporting calves on milk and if these practices differ for replacement heifers, dairy x beef, and dairy bull calves. We want to understand producers’ challenges and needs in this area to identify research and outreach needs.
