Dairy production is the largest livestock sector of Finnish agriculture and bovine mastitis continues to be the most common and costly disease of dairy cows. Udder health and milk quality are topics of active research of our group. Other research areas include hoof diseases, calf health and small ruminant health. We mostly conduct applied, epidemiologic field studies, in close collaboration of industry partners.
