Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Internal medicine
  • Agriculture

His primary scientific interests are in Animal science, Nguni cattle, Breed, Bonsmara and Veterinary medicine. His research integrates issues of Sunflower, Meal, Food science, Food insecurity and Developing country in his study of Animal science. His Nguni cattle study combines topics in areas such as Botany, Agriculture, Polyunsaturated fatty acid, Cattle Diseases and Socioeconomics.

His Breed research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Beef cattle, Biotechnology, Nutrient and Globulin. His Bonsmara study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Endocrinology, Tick, Pasture, Internal medicine and Tenderness. His Veterinary medicine research incorporates elements of Indigenous, Plant species and Intensive farming.

His most cited work include:

  • Some biochemical aspects pertaining to beef eating quality and consumer health: A review (230 citations)
  • Meat quality of Nguni, Bonsmara and Aberdeen Angus steers raised on natural pasture in the Eastern Cape, South Africa. (135 citations)
  • Relationship between pre-slaughter stress responsiveness and beef quality in three cattle breeds. (92 citations)

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

Michael Chimonyo spends much of his time researching Animal science, Veterinary medicine, Breed, Body weight and Meal. Michael Chimonyo focuses mostly in the field of Animal science, narrowing it down to matters related to Sunflower and, in some cases, Hay. In the field of Veterinary medicine, his study on Tick and Flock overlaps with subjects such as Cape.

His Nguni cattle and Bonsmara investigations are all subjects of Breed research. His work carried out in the field of Nguni cattle brings together such families of science as Socioeconomics and Globulin. His work on Vachellia tortilis as part of general Meal study is frequently linked to Proanthocyanidin, bridging the gap between disciplines.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Animal science (47.30%)
  • Veterinary medicine (16.67%)
  • Breed (16.22%)

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

  • Animal science (47.30%)
  • Meal (12.61%)
  • Body weight (13.06%)

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

His main research concerns Animal science, Meal, Body weight, Food science and Veterinary medicine. His Animal science study frequently draws connections between related disciplines such as Feed conversion ratio. As a part of the same scientific family, Michael Chimonyo mostly works in the field of Meal, focusing on Acacia and, on occasion, Weight gain.

He studies Food science, focusing on Provitamin a in particular. He interconnects Age and sex, Predation and Wet season in the investigation of issues within Veterinary medicine. His work on Hay is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Sunflower.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Effects of environmental enrichment on behaviour, physiology and performance of pigs - A review. (22 citations)
  • Efficacy of Mozambican bentonite and diatomaceous earth in reducing the toxic effects of aflatoxins in chicks (14 citations)
  • Effects of saline water consumption on physiological responses in Nguni goats (13 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Internal medicine
  • Agriculture

Animal science, Meal, Food science, Breed and Biotechnology are his primary areas of study. His Broiler study in the realm of Animal science interacts with subjects such as Physiological responses. The various areas that Michael Chimonyo examines in his Meal study include Acacia and Completely randomized design.

His work on Food quality, Carotenoid, Provitamin a and Provitamin as part of general Food science research is frequently linked to Skin color, bridging the gap between disciplines. The concepts of his Breed study are interwoven with issues in Quality, Weaning, Polyunsaturated fatty acid, Milking and Hygiene. Michael Chimonyo has included themes like Food processing and Digestive tract in his Biotechnology study.
