Dairy at Guelph is a cross-faculty group that was created by professors who want to improve contacts and communications amongst all University of Guelph research teams that conduct research work related to dairy. We also aim to make all of the dairy research and expertise concentrated at the University of Guelph more visible and easily accessible to any external stakeholder or information end-user from dairy farms, producer associations, government agencies and industry.
Dairy at Guelph strives to increase the general public’s awareness for the tremendous amount of research related to dairy that is being done at the University of Guelph. That research explores a wide variety of fields such as animal health and welfare, genetics & genomics, food science, food safety, human health & nutrition, economics, business & management, environmental sciences, computer sciences and engineering.

In 2008, Dr. Baes completed her PhD thesis on fine-mapping quantitative trait loci for somatic cell score in German Holsteins at the Research Institute for the Biology of Farm Animals and the Christian-Albrechts University at Kiel. She has since been involved in various industry-lanced large-scale breeding projects in various species, the most recent of which was a next-generation sequencing project in collaboration with Qualitas AG and the Bern University of Applied Sciences in Switzerland.
