  • Research Topic
    My research topic will be to characterize the extent to which intestinal microorganisms influence growth, productivity, health and welfare of beef cattle placed on feedlots. I am hoping that the proposed research will establish a correlation between the qualitative or quantitative presence of specific microorganisms in faecal samples, and health, growth and meat quality of feedlot beef cattle. Results from this study will then allow for the development of management based interventions, or downstream diagnostics that could be used to minimise the economic losses associated with feedlot placement.
