About Us

Welcome to the Mathematical Nutrition Laboratory (MaNu Lab)

The overall research goal in our lab is to provide tools for the decision-making processes optimizing feeding systems, production efficiency, and profitability of animal production systems. Interrelationships between cattle production and the environment are deeply explored to best identify animal efficiency in their respective environments.

What we do

We intend to provide tools for the decision-making processes optimizing feeding systems, production efficiency, and profitability of animal production systems.

Teaching/courses

Our teaching approach challenges and stimulates critical and thorough thinking of our students. We share our knowledge with great passion and enthusiasm so that they can too become more deeply involved in subjects dear to our hearts.

Research Areas

The main objectives of our research program are: description and characterization of feeds, estimation of nutrient supplied by feeds and required by animals, predictions of nutrient requirements especially those related to water consumption by livestock.

Evaluation of feedstuffs and for livestock specifically through wet chemistry and in vitro procedures

Animal feeding, nutrition, production and performance

Supplementation strategies in grazing systems

Mathematical Modeling and model evaluation of biological systems.

Research funding is a very important component that maintains our lab active allowing us to continue supporting producers locally and globally. Although we are very competitive when applying for federal and private grants, donations play an essential role to keep our program at the highest level. Your support can make the difference!
