We are actively involved in all aspects of research, working with all aspects of the industry, investigating the latest techniques to improve milk quality and reduce mastitis on farm.

We collaborate extensively with both the commercial and public sectors in a range of products from development of mastitis management protocols through to assessing the efficacy of new treatment regimes. We are able to offer facilities for both laboratory and field based research (conducted to VICH-GCP) and have access to a large group of farmers well acquainted with conducting clinical studies.

Recent projects have included the piloting of a new national mastitis control strategy and assessment of dry cow therapy regimes and assessment of the latest diagnostic tests.
