We're investigating the impact of high heat load on gut integrity of sheep and cattle. Specifically, we're trying to determine management and nutritional interventions which will reduce the negative effects of high heat load and thereby improve welfare and production.

Location: Gatton

Expected outcomes: a thorough understanding of the physiological and behavioural responses of animals to high heat load. Data collection, data entry, blood and tissue sampling from animals, laboratory analysis of samples

Supervisors: Associate Professor John Gaughan
