Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Agriculture
  • Ecology
  • Agronomy

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Grazing, Dry matter, Animal science, Agronomy and Pasture. His work deals with themes such as Perennial plant, Agriculture, Forage and Ecosystem services, which intersect with Grazing. Luc Delaby has included themes like Organic matter, Food science, Lactose, Dairy cattle and Milk production in his Dry matter study.

Luc Delaby interconnects Lactation and Milk yield in the investigation of issues within Animal science. His research in Agronomy intersects with topics in Nutrient cycle, Rumen, Latin square and Livestock. His Pasture study combines topics in areas such as Total dissolved solids and Live weight.

His most cited work include:

  • The linear relationship between the proportion of fresh grass in the cow diet, milk fatty acid composition, and butter properties. (203 citations)
  • The Interaction of Strain of Holstein-Friesian Cows and Pasture-Based Feed Systems on Milk Yield, Body Weight, and Body Condition Score (156 citations)
  • Vertical distribution of biomass, chemical composition and pepsin––cellulase digestibility in a perennial ryegrass sward: interaction with month of year, regrowth age and time of day (136 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Grazing, Animal science, Agronomy, Lactation and Ice calving. His study in Grazing is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Perennial plant, Dry matter, Dairy cattle, Pasture and Milk production. He combines subjects such as Reproduction and Milk yield with his study of Animal science.

His studies in Agronomy integrate themes in fields like Rumen and Latin square. His Lactation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Biotechnology and Lactose. His Ice calving study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Herd and Insemination.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Grazing (52.42%)
  • Animal science (45.81%)
  • Agronomy (31.28%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Grazing (52.42%)
  • Animal science (45.81%)
  • Lactation (26.87%)

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

His main research concerns Grazing, Animal science, Lactation, Agronomy and Ice calving. His studies deal with areas such as Perennial plant, Dry matter, Productivity, Pasture and Hectare as well as Grazing. His Pasture research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Dairy cattle and Crossbreed.

His Animal science study incorporates themes from Nutrient, Protein content and Milk yield. His Lactation research incorporates elements of Silage, Breed, Stocking and Reproduction. His work in Ice calving addresses subjects such as Herd, which are connected to disciplines such as Enteric methane, Animal feed and Animal husbandry.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • INRA feeding system for ruminants. (48 citations)
  • The multi-year cumulative effects of alternative stocking rate and grazing management practices on pasture productivity and utilization efficiency (20 citations)
  • Review: Grass-based dairy systems, data and precision technologies. (19 citations)

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

  • Agriculture
  • Ecology
  • Agronomy

His primary scientific interests are in Grazing, Agronomy, Lactation, Pasture and Animal science. His work in the fields of Grazing, such as Pasture based, intersects with other areas such as Context. His Agronomy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Soil type and Leaching.

His study of Ice calving is a part of Lactation. The concepts of his Pasture study are interwoven with issues in Hectare and Dry matter. His Animal science research focuses on Stocking in particular.
