Effective relationships will require that veterinarians understand the basics of organic production systems, and are able to identify how they can influence animal health in this system. Results from a survey of Wisconsin veterinarians will be presented, including their perceptions of organic livestock agriculture, educational needs and potential means of information delivery.
