You can always ask me about…
Animal Behavior, Handling and Welfare
Dairy Cattle Behavior and Welfare. My lab studies behavioral and physiological indicators of stress in dairy cattle to improve on-farm management practices. Our goal is to develop a better understanding of how production practices affect dairy cattle welfare and determine best management practices that promote better health, well-being, and performance in dairy cattle.

Specific Research Areas:

  • Identify reliable measurements of stress in cattle by integrating behavioral and endocrinal stress responses
  • Evaluate how technological advances in dairy management impact cattle behavior and well-being
  • Determine how to manage environmental stressors that negatively affect dairy calf health, well-being, and performance
