Here in the Ruminant Population Health Research Group, we’re aiming to improve the health and welfare of sheep flocks by conducting high quality research in a multidisciplinary setting. We have expertise in epidemiology, flock health and production and we collaborate widely with researchers across the University and beyond.
We also work very closely with farmers, vets and industry to make sure our research impacts everyday practices and leads to real improvements on sheep farms.
Epidemiological studies into controlling lameness, as well as collaborative work with farmers and vets to help them implement new measures.
Furthering our understanding of the prevention and treatment of the lesions of claw horn disruption, and the role of inflammation in the development of lameness.
