Reproductive Management of Ruminants.
My primary area of research emphasis is in applied reproductive management and physiology of beef and dairy cattle.
Specific Research Areas:
- Development, implementation and optimization of practical programs for synchronization of estrus, follicular development and estrus detection in beef cattle.
- Understanding the nutritional and endocrinological mechanisms that drive the sexual maturation and the onset of puberty in males and females.
- Development of a non-antimicrobial therapies to alleviate clinical metritis and endometritis and improve reproductive performance in dairy cattle.
