The University of Sydney and Murdoch University are conducting a survey into pinkeye of beef cattle as a part of a Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) project.

Pinkeye is a well-known, important eye disease of cattle, but despite many years of research questions remain about its cause, impact and treatments. The survey is being conducted to find out how common pinkeye is in different regions of Australia, its importance, and any predisposing factors.

This team of researchers are seeking your thoughts on pinkeye and how you manage your cattle. The information supplied will be used to help improve prevention, control and management of pinkeye.

Dr Paul Wright said, “pinkeye infections in livestock have a huge economic impact on Australian cattle producers and I encourage producers to assist this research team in their endeavours to finding a cure.”

You are hereby invited to participate in the survey by clicking the following link:

The survey may take about 10-15 minutes to complete. Your name will go into a draw to win one of the ten $100 gift vouchers. Prize winners will be selected without their responses to the online survey being identifiable.

Please note that your participation in this survey is completely voluntary and your responses will be treated confidentially. By completing this survey, you are under no obligation to participate in any future research. You may withdraw from the survey at any time without impacting your relationship with the University of Sydney.

Thank you for your anticipated participation. If you have any questions about this survey, please feel free to contact Dr Mac Kneipp on Mobile 0427712757  or email: or Dr Navneet Dhand, email:
