Physiology of Animal Nutrition

COLLECTIVE OF PHYSIOLOGY

NUTRITIONAL PHYSIOLOGY STUDIES, PERFORMED ON MONOGASTRIC ANIMALS

  • Investigating the nutrients bioavailability of unconventional feed sources to enhance the nutritional food quality
  • Developing in vitro stimulating methods of feedstuff digestibility in monogastric animals. Digestibility studies on fistulated animals and nutrient ileal digestibility evaluation
  • Nutritional solutions based on natural sources of bioactive compounds to ensure the monogastric gastrointestinal health under normal conditions vs. heat stress;

 

STUDIES ON RUMINAL METABOLISM

  • Ruminal metabolism manipulation (protein use efficiency improvement; greenhouse gas emissions reduction; subacute ruminal acidosis prevention);
  • Accurate feed analysis quantification effects of lesser-known feed resources (ruminal degradation dynamics; nutrient intake timing; nutrition effects estimation on ruminal ecosystem)

 

SOLUTIONS FOR SUSTAINABLE MILK PRODUCTION SYSTEMS

  • Premium dairy products development niche (enriching cow milk fat with polyunsaturated fatty acids favorable to human health; estimating the nutrition effects on milk protein fractions)
  • Identification of nutritional biomarkers status - ketosis markers, subacute acidosis markers, excess protein norm markers

 

VALORIZATION OF LITTLE KNOWN/USED FEED RESOURCES

  • Alternatives to classical protein sources, genetically modified plants, drought-resistant plants by: nutritional values corrections, evaluation impact on productivity performances in different feeding situations; particularities capitalization of these resources (eg. secondary metabolites/active substances presence)
