The research group develops methods and tools for production and herd health management for the benefit of farm animal health and welfare in a sustainable context. The research group develops, gathers and disseminates knowledge of production management, herd health and welfare and creates possibilities for an improved communication between farmers, authorities and the surrounding community.
Primary focus areas
Veterinary epidemiology; Management science; Economy; Anthropology and welfare assessment of farm animals.
The developed production concepts, methods and tools contribute to promoting a sustainable farm animal production for the benefit of industry and society. The research is carried out in an international context and disseminated through publication, education, authority consultancy and commercialisation.
The results of the research group are presented in form and forum so they can form part of the development of the primary production, the current social debate and be a basis for research-based service to the public sector and regulation.
