About my research…

My research focuses on improving the health and welfare of dairy cattle through knowledge synthesis, primary research, and knowledge translation.  Currently, my students are working on projects surrounding knowledge synthesis to determine best practices surrounding dry-off in dairy cows, using precision technology to improve detection of illness in young calves, determining best pain mitigation strategies for disbudding dairy calves, and better understanding barriers to improving dairy cattle welfare.

How my research improves life…

Improving life means striving to achieve maximum value of the resources we invest in our research. We seek to do this through addressing relevant and applicable research questions through transparent and evidence-based methodology in order to bring useful information to stakeholders.
