Cattle producers & land managers – your participation is requested

Phosphorous Budget For Cow-Calf Operations in Florida, Producer Survey

Dr. Maria Silveira

This project is led by Dr. Maria Silveira, Soil Scientist at the UF/IFAS Range Cattle Research and Education Center in Ona and it is currently funded through the Florida Cattle Enhancement Board funds. The main purpose is to understand phosphorus (P) balances and budgets in the state of Florida. This survey will be instrumental in helping us estimate P 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.

Once again, we are extremely grateful for you contributing your valuable time. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Dr. Silveira at or 863-735-1314 ext. 209.
