My current research interests are around precision livestock farming (PLF), feed efficiency and methane mitigation strategies, this includes:

  • Investigating the use of multi-sensor systems to remotely assess the performance of beef animals.
  • Physiological monitoring of pre-weaned calves as a method of early detection of disease.
  • Investigating novel diet additives as methane mitigation strategies.
  • Development of proxy methods for methane measurement.
  • Development and testing of multi-sensor systems to remotely assess calving.
  • Assessment of electronic identification (EID) in bovine systems.
  • Applications of near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) in forage analysis.
