Nutritional Evaluation of Feedstuffs
- Application new techniques for the determination of chemical composition of forage and concentrate.
- Application of in vivo, in situ and in vitro methods for ruminal and post-ruminal digestibility of common and new feedstuff.
- Ruminal degradability of forage and concentrate.
- Effects of TMR rations and different ratios of forage to concentrate on rumination, chewing activity and ruminal parameters of dairy cattle.
- Determination of the passage rate and digestion kinetics of feeds in ruminants.
- Applying different methods along with additives for forage silages.
- Grinding, eradiation, heating, steam rolling, and flaking of cereal and oil seeds.
Dairy Cattle Metabolism and Milk Production
- Application of feed additives for improving ruminal fermentation rate and increasing the quality and quantity of milk production.
- Feed processing to change the ruminal parameters, hepatic metabolism, and save energy.
- The relationship between ruminal parameters, blood metabolites, milk production and milk quality.
- Alterations of ruminal bacterial, protozoa and fungi populations in response to different rations.
- Application of the protected amino acids and trace minerals for improving milk production and the immune system.
- The effect of different forages and concentrates on ruminal parameters, blood metabolites, growth rate, and meat quality.
- Compensatory growth rate of lambs.
- Hormonal evaluation in response to nutrition.
Weaning Age of Calves
- Feed additives and essential oils for reducing the weaning age.
- The use of management methods to enhance growth, health, ruminal microbial flora and fermentation.
