    Rumen sensors: data and interpretation for key rumen metabolic processes

    10/4/18 | 11:17 AM time | Leipziger Messe

    How can one collect and interpret data for important metabolic processes in the rumen? This is the question that Dr Jan Dijkstra, an associate professor at both the Animal Nutrition Group from Wageningen University & Research (the Netherlands) and in the Department of Animal Biosciences at University of Guelph (Canada), will answer.

    Dr Jan Dijkstra is particularly interested in the interplay between modelling and experimental research in farm animals. His research has contributed to improved understanding of the relationships between diet quality and enteric methane emissions, and has helped to quantify the trade-offs between dietary changes to mitigate methane emission intensity and reducing nitrogen and phosphorus excretion. Dr Dijkstra has made major contributions in the area of rumen fermentation and functioning of the rumen wall. Furthermore, his research group has investigated milk components as key indicators of metabolic processes in dairy cattle. He has successfully taught 27 PhD students and currently supervises 7 PhD students. He has edited 3 books. His publications consist of more than 230 papers in peer-reviewed journals.

    In his keynote speech at ISRP 2019, this expert explains how data for important metabolic processes in the rumen can be collected and interpreted.
