Research Interests

Sam's previous work and PhD studies have been focussed on the genetic variation in ewe body condition across the production cycle. This work also included researching the genetic relationship between adult fat and condition and the reproductive performance of the breeding ewe.

His current role within AGBU is as part of the team which maintains the genetic evaluation of beef cattle within Breedplan. The role incorporates routine estimation of genetic parameters and development and inclusion of new traits.
