Luisa Olmo
University of Sydney student

Luisa is a final year honours student from the University of Sydney completing a Bachelor of Animal and Veterinary Bioscience. Her research project aims to investigate and report on cattle reproduction in Cambodia and recommend improvements through enhanced animal health, nutrition and husbandry. This requires a baseline understanding of the current status and practices involved in cattle reproduction at the smallholder village level in order to identify nutritional, health and husbandry constraints. This will be achieved through analysis of farmer knowledge, attitude and practices (KAP) surveys conducted by Department of Animal Health and Production (DAHP) staff. This is important to investigate appropriate interventions that can be implemented in villages to improve number of calves born. Increasing the number of calves born will lead to an increased cattle population in Cambodia. This will allow farmers to increase their income by selling animals to meet the growing demand for red meat in South-East Asia.
