Within the Ruminant Population Health Research Group, one of our key research themes is dairy herd health. We have a large group of researchers conducting important new work in this field, combining wide-ranging experience in dairy herd health and epidemiology.
Together, we aim to improve the health and welfare of dairy cows by conducting research of international quality and translating that research onto farm and into veterinary practice. We do this by working closely with the dairy industry – understanding its challenges, sharing knowledge and enhancing the value of our research by turning it into valuable practical resources.
We’re proud to be making a powerful impact on animal welfare and farm sustainability as well as helping the industry save millions of pounds, every year.
