Dairy Nutrition Research
The Dairy Nutrition Research laboratory mainly focuses on understanding the interactions between nutrient metabolism and inflammation, mastitis, retinol-binding protein (RBP), lipids and inflammatory mediators, nutrients, lactation and milk synthesis and biology of transition cows.
- Nutrient metabolism
- Relationship between nutrient metabolism during transition period and health measures in the Pacific Northwest dairy herds
- An epidemiological study of morbidity and mortality relationship among lipid soluble vitamins and failure of passive transfer in neonatal dairy calves
- Betaine: total tract digestibility and ruminal fermentation characteristics in dairy cows
- Effects of fatty acids on markers on inflammation and immune system
- Effect of elevated lipid mobilization on fatty acid composition of blood and immune cells
