19 April 2016

Want to go in the draw to win a $100 fuel card? Michael Aldridge, a PhD student with the University of Adelaide is working on a goat genetics project with MLA and the Animal Genetics Breeding Unit, Armidale. Michael is developing economic values for production traits relevant to the goatmeat industry and needs some feedback on different goat production systems to help make decisions on how producers can select more profitable animals. Your production system type will determine which of the below surveys you should complete and some instructions are below. The surveys are designed to only take between 5 to 10 minutes.

Questionnaire instructions

Please respond to the survey which best describes your system. If you operate more than one system then please answer the multiple surveys relevant to you. If you are a seedstock or intensive breeder and sell your bucks to other commercial producers or seedstock breeders please answer SURVEY 3 and on completion, answer SURVEY 2 on behalf of your average client. If you have any questions about the surveys please contact Michael Aldridge via email michael.aldridge@adelaide.edu.au or mobile 0407 314 521.
