Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Biochemistry
  • Enzyme

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Animal science, Weaning, Food science, Meal and Veterinary medicine. His work on Animal feed is typically connected to Lactation as part of general Animal science study, connecting several disciplines of science. His research in Weaning intersects with topics in Weight gain and Feed conversion ratio.

His studies in Food science integrate themes in fields like Erythromycin, Lysine and Grease. The concepts of his Meal study are interwoven with issues in Kilogram and Nursery pig. His Veterinary medicine course of study focuses on Antimicrobial and Livestock.

His most cited work include:

  • Influence of dietary beta-glucan on growth performance, nonspecific immunity, and resistance to Streptococcus suis infection in weanling pigs. (120 citations)
  • Integrated adrenal, somatotropic, and immune responses of growing pigs to treatment with lipopolysaccharide. (116 citations)
  • A field evaluation of mortality rate and growth performance in pigs vaccinated against porcine circovirus type 2. (101 citations)

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

His main research concerns Animal science, Food science, Nursery pig, Weaning and Lysine. Steve S Dritz is studying Finishing pig, which is a component of Animal science. Steve S Dritz combines subjects such as Amino acid and Grease with his study of Food science.

His Weaning study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Veterinary medicine, Litter and Weight gain. Lysine is a subfield of Biochemistry that Steve S Dritz investigates. He has researched Meal in several fields, including Pellet and Distillers grains.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Animal science (54.07%)
  • Food science (24.44%)
  • Nursery pig (17.04%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Animal science (54.07%)
  • Food science (24.44%)
  • Nursery pig (17.04%)

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

Steve S Dritz mainly focuses on Animal science, Food science, Nursery pig, Lysine and Weaning. His research integrates issues of Body weight and Dent corn in his study of Animal science. Steve S Dritz interconnects Amino acid, Zinc and Phytase in the investigation of issues within Food science.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Veterinary medicine and Antibiotics. In his study, Valine and Ractopamine is strongly linked to Tryptophan, which falls under the umbrella field of Lysine. His Finishing pig research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Meal and Stomach.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Effect of dietary medium-chain fatty acids on nursery pig growth performance, fecal microbial composition, and mitigation properties against porcine epidemic diarrhea virus following storage (35 citations)
  • Reviewing the risk of feed as a vehicle for swine pathogen transmission (12 citations)
  • Validation of sampling methods in bulk feed ingredients for detection of swine viruses (7 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Biochemistry
  • Enzyme

His scientific interests lie mostly in Animal science, Body weight, Weaning, Porcine epidemic diarrhea virus and Lysine. He has included themes like Randomized block design, Feed conversion ratio and Phytase in his Animal science study. The Body weight study combines topics in areas such as Meal and Dietary fat.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Iodine value, Once daily and Marketing in addition to Meal. His research in Weaning intersects with topics in Contamination, Fumonisin B1, Fumonisin and Mycotoxin. His work deals with themes such as Biomass, Compensatory growth and Starter, which intersect with Lysine.
