Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Ecology
  • Veterinary medicine

Her primary areas of study are Animal science, Veterinary medicine, Lactation, Animal welfare and Animal-assisted therapy. Anna Valros undertakes interdisciplinary study in the fields of Animal science and Crate through her works. Her Veterinary medicine research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Wood shavings and Increased risk.

Anna Valros usually deals with Lactation and limits it to topics linked to Nursing and NEFA. Her Animal welfare research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Perception, Public economics and Econometrics. Her work carried out in the field of Animal-assisted therapy brings together such families of science as Animal husbandry and Social psychology.

Her most cited work include:

  • Environmental and sow-related factors affecting the duration of farrowing (123 citations)
  • Effect of the environment on the physiology of the sow during late pregnancy, farrowing and early lactation (114 citations)
  • Nursing behaviour of sows during 5 weeks lactation and effects on piglet growth (79 citations)

What are the main themes of her work throughout her whole career to date?

Her primary scientific interests are in Animal science, Veterinary medicine, Animal welfare, Lactation and Internal medicine. In general Animal science, her work in Weaning, Herd and Litter is often linked to Crate linking many areas of study. Her Flock study in the realm of Veterinary medicine connects with subjects such as Perch.

Organic layer is closely connected to Agricultural science in her research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Animal welfare. Anna Valros combines subjects such as Nursing and NEFA with her study of Lactation. Her research brings together the fields of Endocrinology and Internal medicine.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Animal science (38.60%)
  • Veterinary medicine (22.22%)
  • Animal welfare (15.20%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Animal science (38.60%)
  • Lesion (4.68%)
  • Dentistry (1.75%)

In recent papers she was focusing on the following fields of study:

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Animal science, Lesion, Dentistry, Herd and Lipopolysaccharide. As part of her studies on Animal science, she frequently links adjacent subjects like Repeated measures design. The Lesion study combines topics in areas such as Scalding, Logistic regression and Exact test.

Her Logistic regression research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Breed and Risk factor. Her work in the fields of Periodontal disease overlaps with other areas such as Bit. Her biological study deals with issues like Multiple correspondence analysis, which deal with fields such as Agriculture and Animal welfare.

Between 2018 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Factors affecting sow colostrum yield and composition, and their impact on piglet growth and health (12 citations)
  • Behavioural alterations in piglets after surgical castration: Effects of analgesia and anaesthesia. (10 citations)
  • Wooden breast myopathy links with poorer gait in broiler chickens. (9 citations)

In her most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Internal medicine
  • Ecology
  • Pathology

Anna Valros focuses on Animal science, Lesion, Salivary cortisol, Crate and Hay. Anna Valros studies Animal science, focusing on Herd in particular. Anna Valros has included themes like Scalding, Docking, Scoring system and Anatomy in her Lesion study.
