Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Biochemistry
  • Animal science
  • Enzyme

His primary scientific interests are in Animal science, Lactation, Animal breeding, Dairy cattle and Breed. In his works, he undertakes multidisciplinary study on Animal science and Hectare. His studies deal with areas such as Veterinary medicine, Dry matter and Pasture as well as Animal breeding.

His research investigates the connection between Dry matter and topics such as Crossbreed that intersect with problems in Grazing. His Breed research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Norwegian Red and Herd. K.M. Pierce works mostly in the field of Jejunum, limiting it down to topics relating to Cecum and, in certain cases, Ileum and Fatty acid.

His most cited work include:

  • An evaluation of production efficiencies among lactating Holstein-Friesian, Jersey, and Jersey × Holstein-Friesian cows at pasture (96 citations)
  • The effects of seaweed extract inclusion on gut morphology, selected intestinal microbiota, nutrient digestibility, volatile fatty acid concentrations and the immune status of the weaned pig. (96 citations)
  • Effects of breed and feeding system on milk production, body weight, body condition score, reproductive performance, and postpartum ovarian function. (85 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Animal science, Lactation, Pasture, Ice calving and Grazing. He has researched Animal science in several fields, including Rumen and Lactose. In his research, Artificial insemination is intimately related to Pregnancy rate, which falls under the overarching field of Lactation.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Randomized block design and Seasonality in addition to Pasture. His research in Grazing intersects with topics in Perennial plant, Linseed oil, Cattle feeding and Soil fertility. His studies in Crossbreed integrate themes in fields like Breed and Animal breeding.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Animal science (71.43%)
  • Lactation (36.73%)
  • Pasture (30.61%)

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

  • Animal science (71.43%)
  • Pasture (30.61%)
  • Ice calving (27.55%)

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

K.M. Pierce spends much of his time researching Animal science, Pasture, Ice calving, Grazing and Lactation. His work carried out in the field of Animal science brings together such families of science as Rumen, Excretion and Polyunsaturated fatty acid. As a part of the same scientific study, K.M. Pierce usually deals with the Rumen, concentrating on Fatty acid and frequently concerns with Propionate.

His Pasture study incorporates themes from Soil fertility and Zero grazing. K.M. Pierce combines subjects such as Crossbreed and Agricultural science with his study of Grazing. His Total mixed ration study, which is part of a larger body of work in Lactation, is frequently linked to Milking, Lactose and Fertility, bridging the gap between disciplines.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Milk production of Holstein-Friesian cows of divergent Economic Breeding Index evaluated under seasonal pasture-based management. (22 citations)
  • Intake, efficiency, and feeding behavior characteristics of Holstein-Friesian cows of divergent Economic Breeding Index evaluated under contrasting pasture-based feeding treatments (10 citations)
  • Reproductive efficiency and survival of Holstein-Friesian cows of divergent Economic Breeding Index, evaluated under seasonal calving pasture-based management. (8 citations)

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

  • Biochemistry
  • Animal science
  • Enzyme

His primary areas of investigation include Animal science, Pasture, Lactation, Ice calving and Grazing. His work deals with themes such as Randomized block design, Rumen and Polyunsaturated fatty acid, which intersect with Animal science. K.M. Pierce frequently studies issues relating to Milk production and Pasture.

His Grazing research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Monoculture, Legume and Excretion. His Dry matter study combines topics in areas such as Milking, Nutrient and Distillers grains. His Pasture based research incorporates elements of Feeding behavior, Lactose and Energy balance.
