Livestock health: technology, microbes and uncooperative animals

13 February @ 14:45 - 16:00

A decade of research in livestock health:
technology, microbes and uncooperative animals

Dr Katharina Watson

Livestock endemic disease poses a significant challenge for animal welfare, productivity and sustainable farming practices, and is a current UK government research priority. Over the past 10 years Dr Kat Watson has been involved in a range of research projects with a primary focus on livestock endemic disease and how to use emerging technologies to aid disease detection and prevention, as well as investigating antimicrobial resistance in cattle. This talk will showcase some of this research in the context of current issues being faced in UK livestock farming.

Dr Watson is a Senior Lecturer in Animal Science at the Royal Agricultural University.

Please note this talk will start slightly later than normal, at 2.45.
