Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Statistics
  • Gene
  • Genetics

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Animal science, Beef cattle, Breed, Heritability and Genetics. The Animal science study combines topics in areas such as Test and Residual feed intake. His studies deal with areas such as Endocrinology, Feedlot, Myostatin, Veterinary medicine and Internal medicine as well as Beef cattle.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Biochemistry, Polyunsaturated fatty acid, Fatty acid, Animal nutrition and Animal breeding. His Heritability study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Developmental psychology and Feed conversion ratio. His study in the fields of Genotype, Quantitative trait locus and Inbred strain under the domain of Genetics overlaps with other disciplines such as Residual.

His most cited work include:

  • Optimum postweaning test for measurement of growth rate, feed intake, and feed efficiency in British breed cattle (184 citations)
  • Joint modeling of additive and non-additive genetic line effects in single field trials (125 citations)
  • A comparison of the fatty acid composition of triacylglycerols in adipose tissue from Limousin and Jersey cattle (122 citations)

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

Wayne S. Pitchford mostly deals with Animal science, Beef cattle, Breed, Agronomy and Animal breeding. Wayne S. Pitchford combines topics linked to Residual feed intake with his work on Animal science. His research integrates issues of Feedlot, Marbled meat, Quantitative trait locus, Genotype and Heritability in his study of Beef cattle.

His Breed research incorporates themes from Veterinary medicine and Fatty acid composition, Polyunsaturated fatty acid, Fatty acid. As a part of the same scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Agronomy, focusing on Ice calving and, on occasion, Obesity. His studies in Animal breeding integrate themes in fields like Biotechnology, Selection and Animal nutrition.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Animal science (70.53%)
  • Beef cattle (36.84%)
  • Breed (20.00%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Animal science (70.53%)
  • Residual feed intake (17.89%)
  • Agronomy (18.42%)

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

His main research concerns Animal science, Residual feed intake, Agronomy, Herd and Beef cattle. His research on Animal science frequently connects to adjacent areas such as Ice calving. His Residual feed intake research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Weight gain, Angus cattle, Appetite and Feedlot.

His study in Herd is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Pregnancy, Biotechnology and Animal breeding. His Beef cattle study which covers Agriculture that intersects with Integrated pest management, Weight change, Adaptability and Agricultural science. His research in Marbled meat intersects with topics in Longissimus muscle, Tenderness and Longissimus dorsi.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A review of factors influencing key biological components of maternal productivity in temperate beef cattle (27 citations)
  • Selection for residual feed intake affects appetite and body composition rather than energetic efficiency (23 citations)
  • Selection for residual feed intake affects appetite and body composition rather than energetic efficiency (23 citations)

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

  • Statistics
  • Gene
  • Internal medicine

Residual feed intake, Animal science, Agronomy, Rump and Productivity are his primary areas of study. The concepts of his Residual feed intake study are interwoven with issues in Biotechnology and Beef cattle. Wayne S. Pitchford combines subjects such as Ecology, Agriculture, Adaptability, Agricultural science and Weight change with his study of Beef cattle.

His Animal science research integrates issues from Vitamin, Adipocyte and Subcutaneous fat. His Agronomy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Weight gain, Angus cattle and Weaning. His work carried out in the field of Angus cattle brings together such families of science as Feed conversion ratio, Obesity, Ice calving and Pregnancy rate.
