About the author

I have been with the Department of Animal Science of the University of Vermont, as the Extension Dairy Specialist, since 2002. My background is in biosecurity and preventive animal health management (especially calf management and Johne’s disease). I’m currently working on an interdisciplinary project to better prepare farms and communities to implement biosecurity plans in the face of a highly contagious disease emergency. I also conduct research to better understand the risk of highly contagious disease spread among Vermont dairy farms.
