(Minnesota) --- The University of Minnesota Extension and the Minnesota Beef Council are collaborating on an overview study mapping pathways Minnesota beef cattle travel from birth to finish. 

This survey is the first step in a larger effort involving a collaboration between the UMN College of Veterinary Medicine, MN Beef Council, and UMN Extension. The study itself will provide an foundational overview by documenting and describing the farm-to-feedlot pathways currently being utilized by Minnesota beef producers.

The survey is available online and should take producers approximately 5-10 minutes to finish, as results and responses are completely voluntary and confidential. Participants will have the option to be entered into a raffle for a Pierce VAXmate cooler.
