What is the current level of care being offered to animals in South Dakota? What perceptions about animal well-being exist in South Dakota? What educational resources are you looking for to learn more about animal well-being and on-farm care? Are you curious to know the answers? So are we.
The SDSU Extension team is conducting a survey to investigate these questions. The goal of the survey is to gain understanding about the current perceptions of animal well-being in South Dakota, with an emphasis on horses. As the study continues, additional information on other livestock species may be collected.
Who should complete the survey?
Anyone of any age who participates in horse events, owns or manages horses, works in the horse industry, or simply enjoys being a spectator of horse events. All responses will remain confidential.
How to complete the survey?
The survey can be completed online on the Animal Well-being in South Dakota 2014-2015 Survey website, powered by QuestionPro. Follow the directions and when all questions are complete, click submit. If you are uncomfortable completing the survey online, a paper version with return envelope can be mailed to you by simply contacting Heidi Carroll.
