Research Interests

Interests:  Impact of infectious disease on reproduction, control of horn flies in cattle population, urogenital surgery; cattle, camelids, small ruminants.

Description:  Major interest is theriogenology of cattle, small ruminants, and camelids.  These interests include current projects involving analysis of diagnostic tests for accurate detection of bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV) in cattle, methods to control horn flies, effects of BVDV on reproduction in alpacas, and pharmacological studies with alpacas.  A large portion of clinical interests involve food animal medicine and surgery.
