Farm animal practice

Farm animal practice has some unique differences to small animal practice, particularly when looking at how research could be carried out involving veterinary practitioners who primarily offer ambulatory services. To undertake research focused on enhancing the clinical decision-making process for farm animals requires the involvement of many different stakeholders, including industry and consumers, but in particular, vets and farmers. There is much work to do to understand further the existing knowledge gaps and how the CEVM can best meet these.

The practice-based projects we have led in the farm animal sector includes looking at how Quality Improvement activities, specifically Clinical Audit, can be undertaken by staff in farm animal practices. More recently, we are in the process of looking at strategies for enhancing the implementation of vaccination and other biosecurity measures on production animal farms.
