Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Biochemistry
  • Animal science
  • Food science

His scientific interests lie mostly in Rumen, Digestion, Animal science, Yellow grease and Starch. His Rumen research spans across into areas like Nucleotide and Purine. His Digestion study typically links adjacent topics like Feedlot.

His research investigates the link between Feedlot and topics such as Propionate that cross with problems in Monensin and Metabolism. His research integrates issues of Feed conversion ratio and Riboflavin, Biochemistry in his study of Animal science. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Dairy cattle and Animal feed.

His most cited work include:

  • A RAPID PROCEDURE FOR PURINE MEASUREMENT AND ITS USE FOR ESTIMATING NET RUMINAL PROTEIN SYNTHESIS (724 citations)
  • Comparative feeding value of supplemental fat in finishing diets for feedlot steers supplemented with and without monensin. (135 citations)
  • Influence of level and source of dietary fat on its comparative feeding value in finishing diets for feedlot steers: metabolism. (129 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Digestion, Animal science, Rumen, Feedlot and Starch. While working in this field, R A Zinn studies both Digestion and Yellow grease. His Animal science research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Body weight, Feed conversion ratio and Agronomy.

His Rumen study combines topics in areas such as Propionate and Proximal duodenum. His Feedlot study incorporates themes from Weight gain and Metabolism. His work focuses on many connections between Starch and other disciplines, such as Stomach, that overlap with his field of interest in Steaming.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Digestion (69.23%)
  • Animal science (63.46%)
  • Rumen (59.62%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 1997-2015)?

  • Food science (32.69%)
  • Digestion (69.23%)
  • Dry matter (13.46%)

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

R A Zinn mostly deals with Food science, Digestion, Dry matter, Rumen and Fatty acid. His study in Digestion is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Pectin, Pyloric region, Latin square, Abomasum and Saline. When carried out as part of a general Dry matter research project, his work on Neutral Detergent Fiber is frequently linked to work in Pelletizing, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study.

In most of his Rumen studies, his work intersects topics such as Starch. His Starch research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Fermentation, Incubation and Polysaccharide. He focuses mostly in the field of Polysaccharide, narrowing it down to matters related to Propionate and, in some cases, Animal science.

Between 1997 and 2015, his most popular works were:

  • Influence of processed corn grain in diets of dairy cows on digestion of nutrients and milk composition. (106 citations)
  • Influences of saturation ratio of supplemental dietary fat on digestion and milk yield in dairy cows. (88 citations)
  • Influence of free fatty acid content on the feeding value of yellow grease in finishing diets for feedlot cattle. (60 citations)

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

  • Biochemistry
  • Animal science
  • Food science

His main research concerns Food science, Fatty acid, Digestion, Neutral Detergent Fiber and Yellow grease. The various areas that R A Zinn examines in his Fatty acid study include Feedlot cattle and Tallow. R A Zinn combines subjects such as Saturated fatty acid, Cottonseed and Unsaturated fatty acid with his study of Tallow.

R A Zinn combines topics linked to Starch with his work on Digestion. His Neutral Detergent Fiber study is concerned with the larger field of Dry matter. He integrates several fields in his works, including Isovalerate, Rumen and Dairy cattle.
