Thank you again, for your interest. The overall goal of this research is to determine which calf management practices during the first year of life have the biggest impact on a cow’s genetic potential and overall cow longevity in the herd. The time commitment for this project is minimal. The qualifying questions below will take 5 minutes. If you qualify, a member of the research team will send you a 15 minute online questionnaire. Once you complete the questionnaire, you will receive a $10 gift card of your choice (Tim Horton’s or Canadian Tire) for your contribution.

Again, if you have questions at any time, please do not hesitate to contact (in English) Elizah McFarland (; 902-566-0969), Dr. J.T McClure (; 902-566-0717) or Dr. Greg Keefe ( and in French, Cynthia Mitchell (; 902-566-6081). Thank you for your participation!
