The teaching activities are focused on population medicine in bovine production. It includes bovine production system and health, economics of bovine health and health management in the field.
Present researches conducted in economics of bovine health deal with bio-economic sequential optimization modelling of farmer’s health management, with highlights on antimicrobial use, animal welfare, farmer labor and production sustainability. Other research activities focus on the veterinary offices business model, with multi-criteria modelling of the present situation and expected evolution.
