Sabrina Lomax to present Anatomy and Physiology Seminar
Sabrina Lomax, senior lecturer in livestock behavior and welfare with the faculty of science at the University of Sydney and a lead scientist in the Livestock Production and Welfare Group with the faculty of science, will present, "Improvements for monitoring and managing welfare in the Australian red meat industry," at the Anatomy and Physiology Seminar at 4 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 19, via Zoom.
Lomax coordinates the core unit of study, animal behavior and welfare science, for students in the animal and veterinary bioscience degree at the university. Her research aims to promote best practice in livestock production, with a focus on pain mitigation and objective measures of welfare, through the integration of technology with animal behavior and welfare science. Lomax and her research team have made significant contributions to a change in practice regarding practical pain mitigation for cattle and sheep undergoing livestock husbandry procedures. She works closely with industry to improve adoption and secure the sustainability of the livestock industries.
