Dr. John F. Patience - A Multidisciplinary, Multi-Site Study of Feed Efficiency in Swine: What Have We Learned? At Midwest Swine Nutrition Conference


Our long term goal is to increase nutrient utilization and feed efficiency in the pig, to strengthen the competitiveness of the pork industry and to reduce its demand on grains and proteins. We will use a truly multi-disciplinary approach in this project, including nutrition, physiology, microbiology, behavior, immunology, quantitative genetics, swine genomics, proteomics, transcriptomics, bioinformatics and statistics. Through this grant, we will develop new knowledge and new tools to benefit our pork industries and agriculture in general.
