Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Enzyme
  • Biochemistry

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Animal science, Broiler, Feed conversion ratio, Body weight and In ovo. The Animal feed research Peter R. Ferket does as part of his general Animal science study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Clostridium, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science. His Broiler research incorporates elements of Microbiology, Carcass composition, Dietary regimen, Starter and Ileum.

His Feed conversion ratio study incorporates themes from Litter, Food science, Virginiamycin and Jejunum. His Body weight research integrates issues from Dietary factors and Flock. The concepts of his In ovo study are interwoven with issues in Carbohydrate, Biochemistry, Egg white and Incubation.

His most cited work include:

  • Growth, livability, and feed conversion of 1957 versus 2001 broilers when fed representative 1957 and 2001 broiler diets. (540 citations)
  • Carcass composition and yield of 1957 versus 2001 broilers when fed representative 1957 and 2001 broiler diets (375 citations)
  • Growth, Livability, and Feed Conversion of 1957 vs 1991 Broilers When Fed “Typical” 1957 and 1991 Broiler Diets (280 citations)

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

Animal science, Broiler, Feed conversion ratio, Food science and Body weight are his primary areas of study. He focuses mostly in the field of Animal science, narrowing it down to topics relating to Endocrinology and, in certain cases, Incubation and In ovo. His research integrates issues of Bacitracin, Gizzard and Microbiology in his study of Broiler.

His Feed conversion ratio research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Virginiamycin, Incidence, Jejunum, Animal feed and Weight gain. His studies in Food science integrate themes in fields like Amino acid and Dry matter. His work in the fields of Feed consumption and Carcass composition overlaps with other areas such as Research council and Breeder.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Animal science (55.06%)
  • Broiler (25.95%)
  • Feed conversion ratio (25.32%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2012-2021)?

  • Broiler (25.95%)
  • Animal science (55.06%)
  • Feed conversion ratio (25.32%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Broiler, Animal science, Feed conversion ratio, Gizzard and Jejunum. His Broiler study deals with the bigger picture of Food science. Peter R. Ferket studies Litter which is a part of Animal science.

His Feed conversion ratio research includes themes of Meal, Trypsin inhibitor, Completely randomized design, Starter and Ileum. His Gizzard study also includes fields such as

  • Agronomy that intertwine with fields like Proventriculus,
  • Ground corn, which have a strong connection to Body weight. His work deals with themes such as Protease, Amylase, Enzyme, Secretion and Endogeny, which intersect with Jejunum.

Between 2012 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Loss of function of the melanocortin 2 receptor accessory protein 2 is associated with mammalian obesity. (169 citations)
  • Effects of feed grade L-methionine on intestinal redox status, intestinal development, and growth performance of young chickens compared with conventional DL-methionine. (42 citations)
  • Effect of dietary supplementation of xylanase on apparent ileal digestibility of nutrients, viscosity of digesta, and intestinal morphology of growing pigs fed corn and soybean meal based diet. (41 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Enzyme
  • Biochemistry

His main research concerns Broiler, Animal science, Feed conversion ratio, Gizzard and Particle size. Peter R. Ferket has researched Broiler in several fields, including Microbiology, Clostridium butyricum, Lactobacillus and Escherichia coli. Borrowing concepts from Protein oxidation, he weaves in ideas under Animal science.

His Feed conversion ratio study combines topics in areas such as Amino acid, Arginine, Blood physiology, Myopathy and Tibia bone. His Gizzard study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Proventriculus, Trypsin inhibitor, Trypsin, Agronomy and Biochemistry. His work carried out in the field of Agronomy brings together such families of science as Litter, Intestinal mucosa and Ileum.
