Raised Without Antibiotics Survey

Antibiotics are important for maintaining animal health, but their use has come under scrutiny in recent years due to the rise of antibiotic resistance globally. In the U.S., changes have been made to improve antibiotic stewardship in animal agriculture; some producers, especially in poultry, have responded by eliminating their antibiotic use altogether.

Demand for poultry and livestock raised without the use of antibiotics is growing in the U.S., but there are few data available regarding the association between raised without antibiotic claims and animal health and welfare. The Animal Agriculture Alliance has funded a team of researchers from the University of Minnesota, Kansas State University and California Polytechnic University to develop and distribute a survey to assess opinions and experiences of raised without antibiotics programs in animal agriculture and their relationship to animal health and welfare.

The survey is intended for individuals who are actively involved with commercial poultry and livestock production systems, regardless of whether or not you currently are involved in a raised without antibiotics program/system.

The survey is completely anonymous and confidential; no data about individual participants are being recorded. The team would appreciate your participation in this 15 minute survey.
