Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Animal science
  • Food science
  • Biochemistry

Animal science, Randomized block design, Dry matter, Food science and Feed conversion ratio are his primary areas of study. His Animal science research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Rumen, Latin square and Agronomy. His research in Randomized block design intersects with topics in Hay, Lactation and Cynodon.

He works mostly in the field of Hay, limiting it down to concerns involving Forage and, occasionally, Lactose and Weaning. His Dry matter research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Soybean oil and Silage. He has included themes like Dairy cattle, Neutral Detergent Fiber and Vaccenic acid in his Food science study.

His most cited work include:

  • Nutrição de ruminantes (148 citations)
  • Resistance of Santa Ines and crossbred ewes to naturally acquired gastrointestinal nematode infections (62 citations)
  • Effects of Heat Treatment and Physical Processing of Cottonseed on Nutrient Digestibility and Production Performance by Lactating Cows (62 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Alexandre Vaz Pires mainly investigates Animal science, Dry matter, Rumen, Randomized block design and Latin square. His studies deal with areas such as Forage and Agronomy as well as Animal science. His biological study deals with issues like Silage, which deal with fields such as Cottonseed.

His Rumen research includes elements of Monensin, Essential oil and Propionate. Alexandre Vaz Pires focuses mostly in the field of Randomized block design, narrowing it down to matters related to Lactation and, in some cases, Lactose. His Latin square research includes themes of Ammonia, Starch and Beef cattle.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Animal science (77.62%)
  • Dry matter (40.95%)
  • Rumen (26.19%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Animal science (77.62%)
  • Narasin (14.76%)
  • Dry matter (40.95%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His primary areas of investigation include Animal science, Narasin, Dry matter, Feedlot and Forage. His Animal science research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Randomized block design and Rumen, Latin square. His work deals with themes such as Essential oil and Propionate, which intersect with Rumen.

His work carried out in the field of Dry matter brings together such families of science as Feed conversion ratio, Compensatory growth, Carbohydrate and Beef cattle. Alexandre Vaz Pires interconnects Breed, Liver enzyme, Nutritional Supplementation and Pepper in the investigation of issues within Feedlot. His Hay research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Lactation and Weaning.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Plasma and milk fatty acid profiles in goats fed diets supplemented with oils from soybean, linseed or fish (9 citations)
  • Low doses of monensin for lambs fed diets containing high level of ground flint corn (5 citations)
  • Effects of narasin supplementation on dry matter intake and rumen fermentation characteristics of Bos indicus steers fed a high-forage diet (5 citations)
