Benjamin Lecorps, PhD student in Animal Welfare, in a Q&A with Media Relations

Benjamin Lecorps, a PhD student in the animal welfare program, participated in a Q&A with UBC Media Relations as the lead author of a new study: Dairy calves’ personality traits predict social proximity and response to an emotional challenge.
