  • Management
  • Internal medicine

David C J Main mostly deals with Welfare, Lameness, Veterinary medicine, Dairy cattle and Animal husbandry. His Welfare research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in HUBzero, Animal-assisted therapy, Public economics and Affect. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Working animal and Demography.

He has researched Lameness in several fields, including Milking, Herd, Scoring system and Environmental health. His study focuses on the intersection of Dairy cattle and fields such as Incidence with connections in the field of Mastitis, Cruelty to animals, Body condition and Breed. His research integrates issues of After treatment, Hindlimb lameness and Median time in his study of Animal science.

His most cited work include:

  • Assessment of positive welfare: A review (267 citations)
  • Assessment of the welfare of working horses, mules and donkeys, using health and behaviour parameters (189 citations)
  • Assessment of lameness prevalence and associated risk factors in dairy herds in England and Wales (184 citations)

David C J Main interconnects Animal husbandry, Legislation, Animal Welfare, Public economics and Environmental resource management in the investigation of issues within Welfare. He has included themes like Resource and Certification in his Public economics study.

His research in Lameness intersects with topics in Herd, Animal science and Environmental health. He frequently studies issues relating to Incidence and Veterinary medicine. The Farm assurance study combines topics in areas such as Productivity and Agricultural economics.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Welfare (43.51%)
  • Lameness (25.19%)

His studies deal with areas such as Compassion, Hidden curriculum and Veterinary education as well as Medical education.

His study in Veterinary medicine is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Behaviour change, Persuasion and Relevance. The study incorporates disciplines such as Outcome assessment, Public economics and Agricultural economics in addition to Farm assurance. Dairy cattle is often connected to Lameness in his work.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The future of veterinary communication: Partnership or persuasion? A qualitative investigation of veterinary communication in the pursuit of client behaviour change. (48 citations)
