Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Agriculture
  • Biochemistry

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Dry matter, Dairy cattle, Pasture, Grazing and Agronomy. William J. Wales has researched Dry matter in several fields, including Food science, Conjugated linoleic acid, Beef cattle and Feed conversion ratio, Residual feed intake. His work in Dairy cattle tackles topics such as Biotechnology which are related to areas like Milk products, Dairy herds and Herd.

His Pasture study frequently intersects with other fields, such as Animal science. His work deals with themes such as Forage and Fatty acid, which intersect with Grazing. The Agronomy study combines topics in areas such as Rumen and Animal feed.

His most cited work include:

  • Effects of variations in herbage mass, allowance, and level of supplement on nutrient intake and milk production of dairy cows in spring and summer (117 citations)
  • Accuracy of genomic predictions of residual feed intake and 250-day body weight in growing heifers using 625,000 single nucleotide polymorphism markers. (108 citations)
  • Grape marc reduces methane emissions when fed to dairy cows (83 citations)

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

William J. Wales mainly focuses on Animal science, Dry matter, Pasture, Grazing and Agronomy. His Animal science study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Canola, Rumen and Feed conversion ratio, Residual feed intake. His Dry matter research integrates issues from Animal feed, Food science, Lactose, Beef cattle and Milking.

The concepts of his Pasture study are interwoven with issues in Meal, Dairy cattle, Hay, Forage and Lolium perenne. The study incorporates disciplines such as Perennial plant, Nutrient intake and Cereal grain in addition to Grazing. His work carried out in the field of Agronomy brings together such families of science as Organic matter, Digestion and Nutrient.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Animal science (50.67%)
  • Dry matter (40.00%)
  • Pasture (38.00%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Animal science (50.67%)
  • Dry matter (40.00%)
  • Grazing (35.33%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Animal science, Dry matter, Grazing, Pasture and Rumen. The various areas that William J. Wales examines in his Animal science study include Canola, Meal and Perennial plant. His Dry matter study incorporates themes from Methane emissions, Methane and Beef cattle.

William J. Wales studied Methane and Selective breeding that intersect with Dairy cattle. His Grazing research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Milking and Enteric methane. His Pasture research incorporates elements of Biomass and Concordance correlation coefficient.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Metabolic profiling of early-lactation dairy cows using milk mid-infrared spectra. (28 citations)
  • Effects of feeding wheat or corn and of rumen fistulation on milk production and methane emissions of dairy cows (9 citations)
  • Volatile Fatty Acids in Ruminal Fluid Can Be Used to Predict Methane Yield of Dairy Cows. (7 citations)

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

  • Agriculture
  • Ecology
  • Biochemistry

William J. Wales focuses on Animal science, Dry matter, Canola, Meal and Hay. His research in Animal science intersects with topics in Coefficient of determination, Grazing and Globulin. His Grazing research includes elements of Beef cattle, Propionate, Methane and Respiration.

Dry matter is closely attributed to Ruminant in his study. His Canola study combines topics in areas such as Methane emissions and Rumen. Much of his study explores Milk production relationship to Pasture.
