2019-116: Stocking density and feed bunk space as a risk factor for liver abscesses

Researcher: Diego Moya

Funding: $20,000

Liver abscesses continue to be an issue for beef producers. According to the National Beef Quality Audit in 2016, liver discounts were estimated at $20.98/head, with a total loss of $61.2 million to the industry.
Dr. Diego Moya from the University of Saskatchewan will note how cattle behavior towards practices such as slick bunks affect how the cattle eat, and the effects on their livers.


Waiting for research results.
