Calling UK dairy farmers! You are invited to take part in an online survey on summer mastitis in dairy cattle, run by the Veterinary Parasitology Research Group of Liverpool University and Professor Diana Williams. 

The study is investigating the impact of hedges and trees around pasture on the risk of summer mastitis in dairy cattle. It is part of the Resilient Dairy Landscapes project, funded by the Global Food Security Programme. 

They are recruiting dairy farmers with heifers or dry cows (whether or not you have had cases of summer mastitis). The survey should take about 20 minutes to complete and respondents will be entered in a prize draw (5x £50 Amazon Vouchers).

The survey will close on the 19th of September 2022
