This is the first time the National Beef Quality Audit has sought input from feeders, stockers, cow-calf operators and seedstock producers. Sis says the 43 question survey aims to learn more about today's cattle producers.

Cattle producers can take the short online survey online through February 6th. Sis will also survey producers attending the upcoming Cattle Industry Convention February 1st through the 4th in Nashville, Tennessee.

Further - Sis says producer input is very important in trying to take a broad nationwide view of today's cattle producers. The audit set out to gain input from 10-thousand producers - but so far the response has been below expectations. Sis says it takes about 10 minutes for producers to take the online survey. The survey remains open through February 6th at cattle survey dot com (www.cattlesurvey.com).
