Biodiversity and cattle well-being
Our project, based at the University of Vermont, is a collaboration between the Department of Animal Sciences, Center for Sustainable Agriculture, and Gund Institute for Ecological Economics. It seeks to determine how biodiversity affects cattle well-being, health, and productivity. Read more about the project here.
