Sustainable Beef Systems Research Group
Dr. Campbell received his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from the Ontario Veterinary College at the University of Guelph in 1985. From 1985 until 1998, Dr. Campbell worked in rural veterinary practices in Ontario until he returned to the University of Guelph and completed a Doctor of Veterinary Science degree in 1991.
Dr. Campbell joined the faculty of the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in 1991. He teaches beef cattle health management and epidemiology to students in the veterinary program and is actively involved in the Field Service practice of the Western College of Veterinary Medicine. The field service practice provides veterinary services to cow-calf and feedlot operations in the Saskatoon area. He is also involved in the WCVM disease investigation unit and in the formation of a new Master of Public Health program. In 2004, Dr. Campbell spent a sabbatical year working at the Ontario Veterinary College and doing consulting work with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency on the emergence of BSE in the Canadian Cattle population.
Dr. Campbell's research focuses on the control and management of infectious
diseases in beef cattle operations. Topics such as biosecurity, the appropriate
use of antimicrobials to prevent antimicrobial resistance, vaccination
strategies for beef cattle, and public health issues related to beef cattle
production have all been addressed in his research program. He has a special
interest in antimicrobial resistance of beef cattle, Trichomoniasis, Bovine
virus diarrhea and Johne's disease.
