Cattle Producers Seek Information to Advance Animal Care
Merck Animal Health conducted a comprehensive survey to identify the resources, topics and training needed to advance cattle care and well-being. The survey included a cross section of segments and sizes, but interestingly, the needs expressed were very similar.
- Veterinarians and nutritionists were ranked by all segments of producers as most influential in setting guidelines for beef cattle care, with state and national trade associations and organizations, universities and Extension following.
- No. 1 most impactful resource in helping improve animal care was written protocols and procedures, followed by written employee animal care commitments.
- No. 1 animal welfare topic where training is needed was animal handling, identifying and treating sick animals was second, and animal identification and verification were third. The only exception was among beef veterinarians who ranked vaccination protocols third.
Merck Animal Health is committed to filling those gaps and providing useful resources through Cattle Care365.
