Research involves dairy cattle nutrition and physiology with intent of improving the efficiency of producing food for people. Current projects include developing genomic and management tools to improve feed efficiency, discovering better strategies to feed cows according to their needs, discovering ways to promote health and lifetime productivity of calves and heifers, and developing practical ration balancing tools.
