Commercial cow-calf producers wanted for online feed testing survey

What’s your take on feed testing? Complete the Western Canadian Feed Testing and Ration Balancing Survey to share how you use feed testing or other methods of analyzing feed quality.

This online survey is open to commercial cow-calf producers in Western Canada who run a minimum of 25 head. As the researchers behind the survey are looking for a range of perspectives, respondents don’t have to use feed testing to participate.

The survey takes about 15-20 minutes to complete and includes questions on the use of feed testing or ration balancing, types of feed used, and other approaches to measuring feed quality and animal nutrition.

The findings of this survey, which is funded by the Beef Cattle Research Council and the Saskatchewan Agriculture Development Fund, will direct research and extension activities.

Complete the survey here.
