California Survey of Small-Scale Livestock and Poultry Producers Underway

The Backyard Poultry/Livestock Survey that was originally created as part of the Healthy Animals, Healthy People workshop series is now open to all owners and small-scale producers of livestock and poultry in California. Conducted by the University of California Cooperative Extension and the School of Veterinary Medicine and funded by the California Department of Food and Agriculture, this online survey will take about 20 minutes to complete. The questionnaire asks about the specific practices and perceptions that you apply to your animals’ health, husbandry, and antimicrobial use. It is being conducted for research and outreach purposes in order to find better ways to serve people and communities with backyard and small-scale livestock or poultry.
