Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Agriculture
  • Animal science

Animal science, Dairy cattle, Pasture, Grazing and Dry matter are his primary areas of study. His studies in Animal science integrate themes in fields like Protein retention, Ice calving, Methanogenesis and Botany. His study in Dairy cattle is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Hectare and Herd.

His Pasture research incorporates themes from Lactation and Romney sheep. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Body weight and Nutrient. The concepts of his Dry matter study are interwoven with issues in Rectal temperature, Live weight and Energy metabolism.

His most cited work include:

  • Somatotropic axis components and nutrient partitioning in genetically diverse dairy cows managed under different feed allowances in a pasture system. (107 citations)
  • Rumen function and digestion parameters associated with differences between sheep in methane emissions when fed chaffed lucerne hay (106 citations)
  • A comparison of three strains of holstein-friesian grazed on pasture and managed under different feed allowances. (105 citations)

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

His main research concerns Animal science, Pasture, Dairy cattle, Lactation and Grazing. His work in Animal science is not limited to one particular discipline; it also encompasses Ice calving. Colin Holmes interconnects Dairy industry, Estrous cycle and Romney sheep in the investigation of issues within Pasture.

As part of one scientific family, Colin Holmes deals mainly with the area of Dairy cattle, narrowing it down to issues related to the Crossbreed, and often Biotechnology. His work on Body condition score as part of his general Lactation study is frequently connected to Milk fat, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. The Grazing study combines topics in areas such as Productivity and Perennial plant.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Animal science (66.67%)
  • Pasture (27.78%)
  • Dairy cattle (25.56%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2008-2013)?

  • Dry matter (17.78%)
  • Pasture (27.78%)
  • Grazing (21.11%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Dry matter, Pasture, Grazing, Agronomy and Animal science. His Dry matter research integrates issues from Pasture based and Food science. His Grazing study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Herd and Ice calving.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Silage, Stocking, Live weight and Sorghum in addition to Herd. His work on Dairy cattle as part of general Animal science research is frequently linked to Mathematics, bridging the gap between disciplines. His work on Cattle feeding as part of general Dairy cattle study is frequently linked to Allowance, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science.

Between 2008 and 2013, his most popular works were:

  • Somatotropic axis components and nutrient partitioning in genetically diverse dairy cows managed under different feed allowances in a pasture system. (107 citations)
  • Effects of stocking rate, supplementation, genotype and their interactions on grazing dairy systems: a review. (69 citations)
  • Description and evaluation of the Farmax Dairy Pro decision support model (68 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Agriculture
  • Genetics

Colin Holmes mainly focuses on Dairy cattle, Hectare, Animal science, Somatotropic cell and Grazing. Dairy cattle connects with themes related to Milk yield in his study. His Milk yield study incorporates themes from Milking, Body condition score and Body condition.

He integrates several fields in his works, including Somatotropic cell, Milk fat, Nutrient, Genetic selection, Pasture and Lactation. His Grazing research focuses on Cattle feeding and how it connects with Dry matter. Colin Holmes integrates Mathematics and Ice calving in his research.
