Overall research objectives are to improve efficiency and productivity in beef cattle production through strategic nutritional management of the cowherd. We are especially interested in: 1) investigating the effects of maternal metabolic efficiency on cow lifetime productivity and offspring efficiency, 2) targeted supplementation to mitigate negative effects of gestational nutrient restriction, and 3) influences of gastrointestinal characteristics on individual feed efficiency. Additional research interests include effects of gestational nutrition on maternal and offspring gastrointestinal growth and function as well as production implications of developmental programming in ruminants.
