The project’s lead researcher is Prof. Antonio Gallo of the Department of Animal Sciences, Nutrition and Food - DiANA.

The project will use COVID-19 data from farms and existing models to predict changes in dairy production and feed costs, with the aim of helping to reorganise production and supply quickly and efficiently during pandemic events or similar market shocks.
