Merlyn K. Nielsen mostly deals with Animal science, Milk production, Genetics, Lactation and Heritability. His specific area of interest is Animal science, where Merlyn K. Nielsen studies Crossbreed. The concepts of his Genetics study are interwoven with issues in Quantitative trait locus, Energy balance and Sire.
His Lactation study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Feedlot, Shorthorn, Red Poll, Beef cattle and Milking. Merlyn K. Nielsen combines subjects such as Feeding behavior, Male mice and Residual feed intake with his study of Heritability. He has researched Gestation in several fields, including Litter, Fetus and Inbreeding.
Animal science, Beef cattle, Litter, Internal medicine and Endocrinology are his primary areas of study. His research integrates issues of Heritability and Reproduction in his study of Animal science. The various areas that Merlyn K. Nielsen examines in his Heritability study include Statistics and Genetic variation.
His study on Reproduction also encompasses disciplines like
His primary areas of investigation include Animal science, Beef cattle, Feed conversion ratio, Heat losses and Breed. His work in the fields of Feed conversion ratio, such as Residual feed intake, overlaps with other areas such as Composition. His Residual feed intake research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Respiration, Mitochondrion and Ratón.
His Breed research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Feedlot and Crossbreed. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Veterinary medicine, Additive genetic effects and Main effect. The Biotechnology study combines topics in areas such as Weaning, Litter, Replicate and Parity.
His main research concerns Residual feed intake, Feed conversion ratio, Breed, Beef cattle and Heterosis. His Residual feed intake research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Veterinary medicine, Crossbreed, Animal science, Additive genetic effects and Genetic variation. His Feed conversion ratio research includes themes of Biotechnology, Genetic correlation and Heritability.
