As an extension specialist and teacher of animal well-being, Dr. Erasmus' goals are to address welfare challenges and inspire students to become interested in animal welfare and become engaged with the agricultural industry. In addition to teaching animal welfare at the university level, Marisa's extension and applied research activities are focused on generating science-based methods for objectively assessing and improving animal well-being and identifying individual animal characteristics that enable animals to cope under different circumstances. Marisa's extension activities further focus on generating and transferring information and providing training pertaining to animal well-being.
