Phosphorous Budget For Cow-Calf Operations in Florida Producer Survey

This project is led by Dr. Maria Silveira, Soil Scientist at the UF/IFAS Range Cattle REC and is currently funded through the Florida Cattle Enhancement Board funds. The main purpose is to understand phosphorus balances and budgets in the state of Florida. This survey will be instrumental in helping us estimate phosphorous budget for cow-calf operations and also understand the contribution of the cattle industry to the overall P budget in Florida. 

As a cow-calf producer or land manager, your contribution will be of great value in producing reliable data on phosphorus imports and exports. We appreciate if you can please answer a short survey, which consists of 15 questions related to your cow-calf operation. We anticipate the survey should take about 15 to 30 minutes to complete. The survey can be completed online, over the phone, or by mail.

The directions for submission are on the last page of the survey.

Your involvement in the project is voluntary and all responses will remain anonymous and confidential. You may choose to refuse to answer any of the questions at any time.

The results of this survey will be shared with you through the Florida Cattlemen’s Association magazine, whom we also thank for their support.

Once again, we are extremely grateful for you contributing your valuable time. If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Silveira at or 863-735-1314 ext. 209.
