Nick is a member of the European Board of Veterinary specialists, RCVS recognised specialist. He has interests in claw trimming approaches in dairy cows supervising a Dartington Cattle Breeding Trust project (Sophie Mahendran masters student) and the latest AHDB funded project (Sara Pedersen PhD). He also has an interest in automatic monitoring of cow behaviour and welfare working with researchers at Writtle College, Essex University and Exeter University in the Cow Tracking project and more recently IceRobotics and CattleEye.
