Research Interests

My research interests focus particularly on bovine welfare within various ages and stages of the beef production cycle. My project encompasses the ethics for transportation and proper disposal of cattle. I will be looking at the prevalence of compromised cattle arriving at auction markets, provincial and federal abattoirs in the province of Alberta. Moreover, how these animals are disposed of, how frequently they appear in different types of facilities, and what variable health conditions are associated with a compromised animal.
