Abstract:

Bovine Respiratory Disease is the most common illness among cattle arriving at feedlots and results in decreased weight gain, lower quality meat and death. BRD is highly transmittable and costs cattlemen more than all other diseases combined. A rapid and sensitive diagnostic method for BRD is not currently available. This project will utilize a state-of-art biomedical breath analysis sensor to assess the respiratory health of cattle. Our goal is to develop a method for identifying sick cattle on the basis of a known exhaled immune system biomarker.
