The Applied Ethology research group focuses on housing design and management, behavioural biometrics of stress and disease in animals, ontogeny (development) of behaviour, behavioural genetics, and the scientific basis of livestock welfare standards. Our group works with a variety of livestock species (including poultry, swine and beef cattle) with collaborative research partnerships provincially, nationally, and internationally.
The broiler breeder research group focuses on management and nutritional solutions to optimize reproductive performance in meat-type poultry, which are prone to weight-related reproductive dysfunction. We focus on energy partitioning and nutrient responses of individual animals.
