Beef x Dairy in New York State Survey

Beef x Dairy in New York State Survey

Attention Dairy Producers and Beef Farmers in NYS, and those advisors who work with them!

Your insight is requested to help maintain the viability of the Beef x Dairy Industry in New York State. Take our new survey here: https://cornell.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_5yxP0IqJPncmb78. The survey will be open for several months, starting mid-October 2023.

A lot has changed in the beef x dairy industry in NYS since our last survey in 2021. Your responses to this survey will help Cornell Cooperative Extension Regional Dairy Specialists, Margaret Quaassdorff and Betsy Hicks to better understand the management practices of, and resources needed by NY farmers in this growing market.

Who should take this survey?

  • Dairy Farmers in New York using (and not using) beef sires in their dairy herd
  • Farmers purchasing and growing beef x dairy cattle
  • Farm advisors and consultants assisting farmers with beef x dairy cattle decisions

Even if you have not used beef sires in your dairy herd, you still are encouraged to take our survey to fully quantify the usage of beef sires in NYS.

For questions, or a paper copy of the survey, please contact Margaret Quaassdorff (maq27@cornell.edu); 585-405-2567 or Betsy Hicks (bjh246@cornell.edu); 607-391-2673 – Regional Dairy Specialists with Cornell Cooperative Extension.

Thank you!
