Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Food science
  • Animal science
  • Biochemistry

Her primary areas of study are Food science, Animal science, Rennet, Dairy cattle and Casein. Her work on Food preservation and Bovine milk as part of general Food science study is frequently linked to Allowance, bridging the gap between disciplines. Her work in the fields of Milk production overlaps with other areas such as Ice calving and Time duration.

Her work deals with themes such as Breed, Cheesemaking, Whey protein and Animal feed, which intersect with Dairy cattle. She combines subjects such as Milking and Stocking with her study of Whey protein. Bernadette O'Brien integrates Casein and Somatic cell count in her research.

Her most cited work include:

  • Temporal Trends in Bulk Tank Somatic Cell Count and Total Bacterial Count in Irish Dairy Herds During the Past Decade (71 citations)
  • Lipid and Cholesterol Oxidation in Whole Milk Powder during Processing and Storage (59 citations)
  • The effect of forage type and level of concentrate supplementation on the performance of spring‐calving dairy cows in early lactation (59 citations)

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

Bernadette O'Brien mostly deals with Animal science, Food science, Milking, Herd and Ice calving. Many of her research projects under Animal science are closely connected to Somatic cell count, Milk yield and Udder with Somatic cell count, Milk yield and Udder, tying the diverse disciplines of science together. Bernadette O'Brien focuses mostly in the field of Milk production, narrowing it down to matters related to Biotechnology and, in some cases, Dairy herds and Quality.

Her Food science study deals with Dairy cattle intersecting with Animal feed. Her study in the field of Parlour also crosses realms of Automatic milking, Business and Milk flow. Her studies deal with areas such as Pasture based, Breed and Agricultural science as well as Herd.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Animal science (44.76%)
  • Food science (33.33%)
  • Milking (29.52%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Animal science (44.76%)
  • Food science (33.33%)
  • Milking (29.52%)

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

Animal science, Food science, Milking, Herd and Bulk tank are her primary areas of study. Other disciplines of study, such as Ear tag, Accelerometer and Rumination, are mixed together with her Animal science studies. Her work on Skimmed milk is typically connected to Chlorhexidine, Disinfectant and Manufacturing process as part of general Food science study, connecting several disciplines of science.

Her study in Skimmed milk is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Microbiological quality, Whole milk, Raw milk and Bacterial counts. Her work investigates the relationship between Herd and topics such as Pasture based that intersect with problems in Agricultural science. Her Bulk tank research incorporates themes from Food quality, Food preservation and Bacterial growth.

Between 2017 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Measuring labor input on pasture-based dairy farms using a smartphone. (19 citations)
  • The effect of different precooling rates and cold storage on milk microbiological quality and composition. (11 citations)
  • Leveraging Social Network Analysis for Characterizing Cohesion of Human-Managed Animals (8 citations)

In her most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Food science
  • Biochemistry
  • Animal science

Her main research concerns Animal science, Milking, Concordance correlation coefficient, Accelerometer and Rank correlation. Bernadette O'Brien frequently studies issues relating to Food quality and Animal science. Her Milking research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Food preservation, Bulk tank and Bacterial growth.

Bernadette O'Brien integrates several fields in her works, including Concordance correlation coefficient, Collar, Animal management and Rumination.
