Swine producers asked to participate in feed efficiency survey
Kansas State University swine nutritionists are teaming up with their Iowa State University counterparts in asking swine producers, industry consultants and advisors to the pork industry to participate in an online survey about swine feed efficiency. The survey answers will help guide research direction and educational programs to improve feed efficiency and lower feed costs.
The survey, which can be found at http://tinyurl.com/swinesurvey, aims to identify gaps in current industry knowledge to help researchers better prepare educational materials and plan on-farm commercial research over the next four years, as part of an Agricultural and Food Research Initiative USDA grant, said Joel DeRouchey, livestock specialist with K-State Research and Extension.
The survey should take less than 15 minutes to complete. No responses will be individually identified--all responses will be summarized together, DeRouchey said. Survey participants are not required to give contact information, although if they choose to do so, the research team will provide feed efficiency project updates, including research results and publications as they become available.
Survey deadline is Feb. 20. Questions can be directed to DeRouchey at email@example.com or 785-532-2280.
