But, with exciting news, the blog is about to become a lot more active! Jamie Courter began as the new MU Extension state beef genetics specialist in the Division of Animal Sciences on September 1, 2023.

Jamie holds a bachelor’s degree in animal science from North Carolina State University and earned a master's degree in animal

Tackling Lameness: Missouri Beef Cattle Producer Survey

Beef Cattle Producer Survey – Cattle Lameness and Antimicrobial Usage in Missouri

Researchers at the University of Missouri are conducting a survey of beef cattle producers in Missouri. The purpose of this research survey is to gather information regarding lameness in adult (greater than or equal to 18 months of age) cattle, including bulls, cows, and replacement heifers. The goals of this study are to determine the most common causes of lameness in beef cattle in Missouri and which antibiotics and treatments are most commonly used to treat these lamenesses. The survey is anticipated to take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete.
To take the survey, please follow this link. 

The University of Missouri researchers thank you for your time and interest in participating in this survey!
