Profile

Reader in livestock nutrition and Director of International (Research). My research interest is improving the use of feed nutrients for efficient livestock production; farming to make use of feeds that people cannot eat to produce foods that people can eat, while minimising the environmental impact of the process.

Teaching

Research

My research interests include:

  • Use of forages for improved livestock production

  • Short and long term effects of reducing protein intake of growing and lactating dairy cattle on immediate and subsequent productivity

  • Dietary manipulation to reduce methane emissions from ruminant animals

  • Sustainable intensification of forage-based production systems

  • Improvement of temperate and tropical forages for improved farmer livelihoods

  • Metabolomic analysis of biological fluids for diagnosis of dairy animal nutrient use efficiency and welfare
