In response to the need for cage size research, Maria and I designed a study investigating the cage ceiling heights that mink prefer, to follow on from the feeding height study already underway, and then two more experiments to look at how mink react to Danish versus Canadian floor areas, in terms of stress responses as well as preference. Together the four experiments make a nice coherent whole, and the project will fund Maria ’til 2017.

My next job: applying to NSERC for CRD grant, to try and get them to supply half the money (since the mink farmers’ funds are limited so we should help them use them to the max; a CRD is good for my CV too).
