Jennifer Van Os is an Assistant Professor of Dairy Science and Extension Specialist in Animal Welfare at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA. With her 40% research and 60% extension appointment, she conducts applied research and translates scientific findings to stakeholders. Dr. Van Os received her PhD in the interdisciplinary Animal Behavior graduate program at the University of California-Davis, USA and conducted postdoctoral research in the Animal Welfare Program at the University of British Columbia, Canada. The research in her lab at UW-Madison focuses on understanding, evaluating, and improving the welfare of dairy animals. By measuring behavioral and physiological outcomes, we can learn to understand the cow or calf's perspective and improve their welfare. The goal of Dr. Van Os’ extension program is to promote best practices in management and housing to help the dairy industry adapt as our scientific knowledge about animal welfare continues to grow.
