Dr Michelle McConnell in October issue of Country-Wide magazine

Posted by on 2 October 2015 | Comments

Dr Michelle McConnell's research has been featured in the latest issue of farming magazine Country-Wide.

She discusses a project which aims to identify and investigate specific proteins and bio-actives in the whey and milk fat components of sheep's milk. The project team is looking at how sheep's milk might stimulate the human immune system, as well as other opportunities to extract greater commercial value from sheep's milk. 

Dr McConnell describes sheep's milk as a potential high value commodity, once the fledgling industry can be well supported by science.
