Control of feed intake by hepatic oxidation
Dr Michael Allen is University Distinguished Professor at Michigan State University. He completed his B.S., M.S., and PhD degrees at Cornell University and he was a Dairy Research Scientist at the US Dairy Forage Research Center in Madison, WI prior to joining the faculty at Michigan State University in 1987. Dr Allen conducts research on the control of energy intake and partitioning through the lactation cycle of ruminants. His research has contributed to our understanding of physical limitations to feed intake by ruminal distention as well as the control of feed intake by metabolism of fuels in the liver. He is author or co-author of over 750 publications including journal articles, technical papers, book chapters, research abstracts, extension publications and popular press articles. He has delivered over 375 presentations at scientific society meetings and conferences for dairy producers or technical advisors in over 20 countries. Dr Allen is a member of the National Academy of Science Committee for the Nutrient Requirements of Dairy Cattle, a co-author of the Spartan Dairy Ration Balancer (versions 2 and 3) and has received several awards for his research accomplishments from the American Dairy Science Association.
During the session on Regulation of Feed and Water Intake at the ISRP 2019, Allen will give his keynote address “Control of feed intake by hepaticoxidation: integration of homeostasis and homeorhesis”.
