Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Agriculture
  • Ecology
  • Animal science

Pat Dillon mainly focuses on Dairy cattle, Animal science, Lactation, Ice calving and Pasture. His Dairy cattle research includes themes of Heritability, Veterinary medicine, Body condition score and Milk yield. In Lactation, Pat Dillon works on issues like Lactose, which are connected to Significant difference.

His study in Ice calving is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Herd, Seasonal breeder and Reproduction. His Pasture research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Energy balance, Silage, Cattle feeding and Milk quota, Milk production. His Milk production study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Agronomy and Grazing.

His most cited work include:

  • Relationships among milk yield, body condition, cow weight, and reproduction in spring-calved holstein-friesians (282 citations)
  • Genetic Relationships among Body Condition Score, Body Weight, Milk Yield, and Fertility in Dairy Cows (259 citations)
  • Relationships among international body condition scoring systems. (234 citations)

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

Animal science, Lactation, Ice calving, Milk production and Pasture are his primary areas of study. His Animal science research incorporates themes from Grazing and Milk yield. He interconnects Silage, Body weight, Lactose and Parity in the investigation of issues within Lactation.

Pat Dillon has researched Ice calving in several fields, including Herd, Spring, Pregnancy rate and Reproduction. His Pasture based study in the realm of Milk production connects with subjects such as Genetic merit. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Pasture, Profitability index and Profit is strongly linked to Milk quota.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Animal science (62.50%)
  • Lactation (36.61%)
  • Ice calving (35.71%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Animal science (62.50%)
  • Pasture (25.89%)
  • Lactation (36.61%)

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

Pat Dillon mostly deals with Animal science, Pasture, Lactation, Dry matter and Composition. His research in Animal science tackles topics such as Lolium perenne which are related to areas like Digestion. His Pasture research integrates issues from Quality characteristics and Grazing.

His Lactation study focuses mostly on Ice calving and Total mixed ration. The study incorporates disciplines such as Herd, Antibiotics, Milk production and Somatic cell count in addition to Ice calving. His research investigates the connection with Dry matter and areas like Perennial plant which intersect with concerns in Amino acid.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Pasture Feeding Changes the Bovine Rumen and Milk Metabolome (38 citations)
  • Effect of pasture versus indoor feeding systems on quality characteristics, nutritional composition, and sensory and volatile properties of full-fat Cheddar cheese (34 citations)
  • A 100-Year Review: A century of change in temperate grazing dairy systems. (31 citations)

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

  • Agriculture
  • Ecology
  • Genetics

Pat Dillon mainly investigates Lactation, Pasture, Total mixed ration, Vaccenic acid and Conjugated linoleic acid. His studies link Animal science with Lactation. His Animal science study incorporates themes from Feeding behavior, Ice calving and Energy balance.

The various areas that Pat Dillon examines in his Pasture study include Agriculture, Grazing and Animal welfare. His research in Grazing intersects with topics in Stocking, Agricultural science, Hectare, Milking and Sustainability. His Vaccenic acid research includes elements of Food science, Silage, Ripening and Nutrient.
