Abstract
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.
