Which area(s) do you feel that additional research would be most beneficial to you and your clients in better understanding this disease, or on how we can work together to prevent further spread of the PED virus?
If you have made changes in your manure application business in response to PED and these changes have added time (planning, execution or follow-up), what is the average change in overall staff time that has occurred for a typical job?
