Beef producers asked to take online survey

Kansas State University animal scientist Sandy Johnson is hoping beef cattle producers will take a little time from their day-to-day work to answer a few questions online in order to help her and other scientists understand how producers have integrated artificial insemination into their production system and how it contributes to the profitability of their operation.

The survey, conducted by Johnson and colleagues at several other land-grant universities who make up the Beef Reproduction Task Force, will give animal scientists a better understanding of practices that beef producers use in conjunction with AI and synchronization of estrus. The team would like to hear from those who use AI for their own operation as well as those who provide AI services to others.

Most of the survey questions are simple to answer, said Johnson, who is a livestock specialist with K-State Research and Extension, based in Colby, Kan. Some of the questions will allow producers to share what they’ve learned using AI. Most people should be able to complete the survey in 10 to 20 minutes.

One respondent will receive 50 Estrotect Heat Detection Patches, she said.

The survey results will be available at www.beefrepro.info later this year.

More information about the Beef Reproduction Task Force is available at http://beefrepro.info. The task force includes animal scientists from K-State, University of Nebraska, Iowa State University, South Dakota State University, University of Florida, University of Illinois, University of Missouri and University of Idaho.
