The purpose of this survey is to gather information pertaining to the disease Bovine Trichomoniasis better known as “Trich” among cattle growers. The information you provide on this survey is guaranteed to remain confidential and anonymous. We ask that you do not provide information that identifies you or your operation. All survey results go to New Mexico State University Department of Extension Animal Sciences and Natural Resources.
Furthermore, the information gathered through this survey will be used to help NMSU Cooperative Extension Service pinpoint any weak areas in its efforts to address trichomoniasis in Northern New Mexico, and provide direction for future emphasis in assisting livestock producers in preventing and addressing trich. General results of this survey will be provided through our website.
Deadline for participating in this survey is July 6, 2018. Survey is available online and mail copy.
Trichomoniasis in Beef Cattle: The disease is characterized by an increase in open (non- pregnant) cows or an increase in dry cows at spring branding. This can result in a severe and rapid economic loss for producers. "Trich” became a reportable disease in July 2005 in order to protect the cattle industry and to control the disease in New Mexico. The disease is now regulated by the New Mexico Livestock Board through rules and testing requirements for breeding cattle.
