Focuses on optimizing nutrient utilization by evaluating and developing feeding programs that meet animal requirements, and by improving digestibility, bioavailability, and metabolism of nutrients through nutritional and management strategies. Research activities include evaluation of mechanisms controlling nutrient utilization and metabolism, and their biological regulation in the whole animal. Major areas of research are to investigate limiting amino acid for cattle and sheep, to evaluate the impact of specific nutrients on animal performance and health, and to evaluate factors (e.g. precursors or cofactors for protein and energy metabolism, stress, infection and disease) that affect the efficiency with which nutrients are used for livestock production.
