She obtained her B.Sc. from McGill University (1980), her M.Sc. from the University of Saskatchewan (1982), and her Ph.D. from Pennsylvania State University (1986). Dr. Farmerโ€™s research goal is to increase sow milk yield, hence piglet growth. She was a pioneer in studying mammary development in gilts and sows and identifying factors affecting it. She published 150 scientific manuscripts, 7 book chapters, and is the sole editor of a recently published book entitled โ€œThe gestating and lactating sowโ€ that was also translated and published in Chinese.
