Research Institution
Bovine Respiratory Disease is the most costly disease among cattle arriving at feedlots and results in decreased weight gain, lower quality meat and death. BRD is highly transmittable and a rapid and sensitive diagnostic method for BRD is not currently available. This project will validate a state-of-art biomedical breath analysis sensor to assess the respiratory health of cattle. Our goal is to improve management of cattle by providing an immediate, objective measurement of respiratory health.
