About Cognosco

Cognosco is a contract research group, based in the heart of the New Zealand dairy industry. The group was formed by Dr Scott McDougall in 1997, to provide a research team that could undertake observational studies and clinical trials in ruminant production systems. 

Cognosco is in a unique position of being able to undertake large scale field observational and clinical studies to a high (GCP) standard. The group’s extensive experience in working with veterinarians and herdowners allows Cognosco to perform clinically relevant and scientifically robust studies. Additionally Cognosco has a team that can effectively communicate study results and messages to veterinarians, herdowners and study sponsors.

The team also provide undergraduate and postgraduate training, both nationally and internationally.
