COVID-19 Impact on Dairy Farms in the US – Your Input Is Needed!

— Written By

A team of researchers have developed a set of surveys to better understand the impact of COVID-19 and the coronavirus pandemic on U.S. dairy farms. The results will be used in a grant proposal being submitted to the USDA’s “Rapid Response to Novel Coronavirus” program due in early June that will help obtain funds to benefit the dairy industry. Even if the grant isn’t funded the results will allow the researchers to identify critical areas for outreach activities with the objective of mitigating potential risks to dairy farmers’ and workers’ health, further labor disruptions, milk supply shortages, and economic risks to the sector. All responses are anonymous and input from all stakeholders is critical. Please consider completing the survey applicable to your role in the dairy industry:
