Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Enzyme
  • Biochemistry
  • Food science

His scientific interests lie mostly in Rumen, Silage, Dry matter, Food science and Latin square. His Rumen research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Digestion and Animal science, Beef cattle. In his study, Propionate is inextricably linked to Acidosis, which falls within the broad field of Silage.

His Dry matter research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Feed conversion ratio, Monensin, Cattle feeding and Animal feed. As part of the same scientific family, W.Z. Yang usually focuses on Food science, concentrating on Dairy cattle and intersecting with Neutral Detergent Fiber. His work on Manure management, Manure and Forage as part of general Agronomy research is frequently linked to Emission intensity, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science.

His most cited work include:

  • Special topics--Mitigation of methane and nitrous oxide emissions from animal operations: I. A review of enteric methane mitigation options. (448 citations)
  • Use of Exogenous Fibrolytic Enzymes to Improve Feed Utilization by Ruminants (283 citations)
  • Effects of physically effective fiber on intake, chewing activity, and ruminal acidosis for dairy cows fed diets based on corn silage. (214 citations)

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

Dry matter, Rumen, Animal science, Silage and Latin square are his primary areas of study. His Dry matter study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Dairy cattle, Corn stover and Propionate. His Rumen research incorporates themes from Neutral Detergent Fiber and Digestion.

The concepts of his Animal science study are interwoven with issues in Fodder, Forage, Agronomy and Botany. In Silage, W.Z. Yang works on issues like Distillers grains, which are connected to Polyunsaturated fatty acid. His Latin square research includes themes of Excretion, Microbiology and Acidosis.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Dry matter (80.12%)
  • Rumen (71.43%)
  • Animal science (72.05%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Animal science (72.05%)
  • Rumen (71.43%)
  • Dry matter (80.12%)

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

W.Z. Yang mostly deals with Animal science, Rumen, Dry matter, Food science and Fermentation. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Feed conversion ratio, Digestion, Feces and Propionate. His Rumen research integrates issues from Endocrinology and Citric acid.

His Dry matter research incorporates elements of Silage, Monensin, Animal feed, Beef cattle and Latin square. His research in Silage intersects with topics in Forage, Crossbreed and Marbled meat. His study in Food science is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both In vitro, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Yeast, Enzyme and Straw.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Effect of engineered biocarbon on rumen fermentation, microbial protein synthesis, and methane production in an artificial rumen (RUSITEC) fed a high forage diet (17 citations)
  • Impact of strain and dose of lactic acid bacteria on in vitro ruminal fermentation with varying media pH levels and feed substrates (10 citations)
  • Using ruminally protected and nonprotected active dried yeast as alternatives to antibiotics in finishing beef steers: growth performance, carcass traits, blood metabolites, and fecal Escherichia coli. (9 citations)

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

  • Enzyme
  • Biochemistry
  • Animal science

His primary areas of investigation include Animal science, Dry matter, Rumen, Fermentation and Silage. As a part of the same scientific family, W.Z. Yang mostly works in the field of Animal science, focusing on Latin square and, on occasion, Feces. In his study, Vitamin, Crossbreed and Lactobacillus is strongly linked to Monensin, which falls under the umbrella field of Dry matter.

The Rumen study combines topics in areas such as Endocrinology and Lactic acid. His Fermentation study combines topics in areas such as Digestion, Neutral Detergent Fiber and Xylanase. His work deals with themes such as NEFA, Beef cattle and Marbled meat, which intersect with Silage.
