Surveys and Studies

Surveys and Studies is the section of AUS that helps the program to better understand antimicrobial usage and resistance actually occurring in California’s livestock. To accomplish this, Surveys and Studies conducts confidential and voluntary surveys and gathers biological samples for resistance testing. By participating in these surveys, California livestock producers and veterinarians have the opportunity to show the real picture of the industry and affect positive change. And rest assured, any information provided to AUS Surveys and Studies is held confidential by state law.
