Lindsay was born and raised in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, and received her BS in Animal Biology at the University of British Columbia (UBC). After graduation she worked as an intern at Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada and then as a research assistant at the UBC Dairy Education and Research Centre in Agassiz, BC. Her main roles were to assist with research on dairy cows and calves and help manage visiting students. In 2011, Lindsay completed her MS in Animal Science from the University of British Columbia Animal Welfare Program. Her thesis focused on dairy cattle welfare and feeding behavior. While completing her MSc she continued to gain experience working on-farm as well as conducting her own research. For almost 5 years, she worked for the Novus C.O.W.S.? Program conducting on-farm cow comfort assessments, seminars on cow comfort, and providing producers with herd-specific feedback relative to regional benchmarks. By visiting hundreds of dairies across the country, she gained a unique perspective and understanding of cow comfort and the dairy industry both in New York and across the United States. Lindsay joined the Cornell North Country Regional Ag Team as a Regional Dairy Specialist in 2016. Her passions and areas of focus include cow comfort, lameness, cow behavior, barn design, and promoting the dairy industry. She is based out of the Lewis County office, and she can be reached at lc636@cornell.edu or 607-592-0290.
