Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Pathology

His primary scientific interests are in Internal medicine, Surgery, Dairy cattle, Incidence and Fertility. His study focuses on the intersection of Internal medicine and fields such as Endocrinology with connections in the field of Physiology. The concepts of his Dairy cattle study are interwoven with issues in Pain score, Lameness, Family medicine, Veterinary medicine and Response rate.

Richard Laven usually deals with Incidence and limits it to topics linked to Vitamin E and Lower risk and Mastitis. His Digital dermatitis study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Erythromycin, Antibiotics, Systemic antibiotics, Intensive care medicine and Treatment strategy. Richard Laven incorporates Peracetic acid and Animal science in his studies.

His most cited work include:

  • Bovine retained placenta: aetiology, pathogenesis and economic loss (145 citations)
  • Treatment strategies for digital dermatitis for the UK. (100 citations)
  • Effect of vitamin E supplementation on the health and fertility of dairy cows: a review (85 citations)

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

Richard Laven mainly focuses on Animal science, Herd, Veterinary medicine, Dairy cattle and Ice calving. He combines subjects such as Endocrinology, Lactation, Mastitis, Internal medicine and Grazing with his study of Animal science. His Herd study combines topics in areas such as Milking and Incidence.

Outbreak is closely connected to Disease in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Veterinary medicine. As a part of the same scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Dairy cattle, focusing on Lameness and, on occasion, Lesion and Breed. His research integrates issues of Hoof and Confidence interval in his study of Ice calving.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Animal science (36.59%)
  • Herd (21.46%)
  • Veterinary medicine (18.05%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Animal science (36.59%)
  • Herd (21.46%)
  • Dairy cattle (17.56%)

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

Richard Laven spends much of his time researching Animal science, Herd, Dairy cattle, Ice calving and Animal welfare. His work deals with themes such as Lactation, Pasture, Colostrum, Passive immunity and Grazing, which intersect with Animal science. His study in the fields of Digital dermatitis under the domain of Herd overlaps with other disciplines such as Bovine Digital Dermatitis.

His work carried out in the field of Dairy cattle brings together such families of science as Feces, Lameness, Stimulation, Completely randomized design and Facial eczema. Lameness is a subfield of Surgery that Richard Laven explores. His Ice calving research includes elements of Cholesterol, Liver function, Albumin and Haptoglobin.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The relationship between failure of passive transfer and mortality, farmer-recorded animal health events and body weights of calves from birth until 12 months of age on pasture-based, seasonal calving dairy farms in New Zealand. (12 citations)
  • Farm level risk factors for bovine digital dermatitis in Taranaki, New Zealand: An analysis using a Bayesian hurdle model. (9 citations)
  • Impact of weaning age on rumen development in artificially reared lambs1. (7 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Pathology
  • Disease

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Animal science, Herd, Bovine Digital Dermatitis, Dairy cattle and Milking. A large part of his Animal science studies is devoted to Weaning. His Dairy cattle research focuses on Digital dermatitis in particular.

His Digital dermatitis research is within the category of Lameness. His research in Confidence interval intersects with topics in Mastitis and Incidence. In the field of Veterinary medicine, his study on Young stock overlaps with subjects such as Geography.
