We bring together researchers from within the University and industry and collaborate with national and international research partners to study the interactions among genetics, physiology, management and the natural environment.

Our multidisciplinary approach involves disciplines as diverse as physics and human medicine to the study livestock species which opens new opportunities for scientific discovery and to realise ground breaking practical applications.

The Davies Livestock Research Centre is working actively on projects from creating basic scientific knowledge to developing advanced breeding methods.
