Livestock Producers: Do You Drug Test?
The 2019 Farm Journal Cannabis in U.S. Agriculture Study asked livestock producers with employees about their drug testing policies. Here’s what we learned.
Objectives and methodology: Measure farmers’ and ranchers’ awareness of cannabis and interest in growing hemp. The e-blast was distributed to row crop farmers with 1+ acres of corn, soybeans or wheat, and also to livestock producers with 1+ head of hogs, beef cattle, dairy cattle or poultry, and produce growers with 1+ acres of produce.
A set of 950 completes yielded a margin of error of +/- 3.2%.
Respondents were entered in a drawing to receive one of 25 copies of “Making the Family Farm the Family Business” by Chip Flory.
