Outdoor-Raised Pig Survey
This survey is appropriate for anyone that raises at least one domestic pig outside* including: pork producers, farmers, ranchers, backyard operations, 4-H members, pet pig owners, heritage pig breeders, pig rescuers, etc.
(*also referred to as pasture-raised pigs, outdoor-raised pigs, i.e. pig(s) spend at least 50% or more of their time outside, not confined inside a barn or building)
This survey should take 10-15 minutes to complete and you’ll have a chance to win gifts.
Your answers will help UCCE extension develop outreach and educational materials for all producers that raise pigs outdoors.
All information is kept confidential and only reported as a group (i.e. county level statistics), not on an individual level.
