I use all the sources. It depends on what I am researching

My vet hands down is my main source. He does an excellent job of keeping himself up to date and knows both the local and industry issues that might affect my herd.

Rely on local vet as well as visiting with outlying vets as to their perspectives. They all do not see eye to eye. Visiting with other producers has helped and with listening and reading media.

I also rely on my vet and livestock media, but i always check with cooperative extension before making a final decision. The advice that i get from Extension is not based on someone making a sale or meeting a quota and i value the objectivity.

If it weren't for gathering of groups such as NCBA, I really don't get much information on specific questions which I may have.
