Improving animal welfare and production traits

Enhancing the well-being, resilience and productivity of livestock

sheep

We use our understanding of the development, genetics and physiology of farm animals to enhance the well-being, resilience and productivity of livestock.

This includes developing novel approaches to improve attributes such as birth weight, meat quality and fertility, without compromising animal welfare.

The identification of biomarkers of key traits enables improvements in veterinary practice and animal models of disease.
