Surveys & 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, voluntary surveys and gathers biological samples for resistance testing. By participating in these surveys, Californian livestock producers and veterinarians have the opportunity to show the real picture of the industry and effect positive change. And rest assured, all individual survey responses provided to AUS Surveys and Studies are held confidential by state law.
