The University of Vermont is inviting US livestock farmers to participate in a national-level survey on transboundary animal disease prevention, to gather behavioural attitudes that drive the adoption of biosecurity at the farm level.

The livestock industry is vulnerable to threats of an infectious outbreak of diseases, such as the foot-and-mouth disease and the African swine fever. These diseases are a national and international threat to animal farming and have dire economic consequences. Decision making and human behaviour at the farm level are at the heart of disease prevention, management and control, a University of Vermont press release stated.

The survey takes around 15 minutes.
