The Davies Research Centre brings together advances in technology and knowledge. By studying the interactions among genetics, physiology, management and the natural environment the Centre will improve animal productivity, welfare and the quality of food for consumers.
The Davies Research Centre supports multi-disciplinary research to understanding the factors that affect health, development and efficiency at all stages of life from prenatal development, through postnatal growth to the maturation of the adult. The Centre will create opportunities for the interaction among distant scientific areas, to extend capability and build interdisciplinary teams to take holistic approaches to address scientific questions and respond to industry challenges with novel solutions. Our targets are to ensure the sustainability of red meat supply by optimising animal welfare, efficiency and product quality and delivering excellence in ruminant science.
