Research Area(s): Research focused on the study of animal behaviour, physiology and metabolism to optimize the balance between animal welfare, health and productivity, and where the unifying thread will be the use of animal behaviour as the main phenotypic trait to assess nutritional and management strategies, such as the impact of novel foods/additives, the long-term effects of early-life cow-calf management, or the use of precision farming technologies to measure and manage yield variability at the individual level.
