Research Profile

Infectious diseases affecting bovine reproduction and performance: Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (Johne’s disease), Ureaplasma diversum, Tritrichomonas foetus. Factors influencing beef cattle reproductive performance: body condition/nutrition, heifer development and assessment, estrus synchronization and timed-insemination, estrus expression.
