Areas of Expertise:

  • Perinatal period / animal breeding
  • Animal nutrition - use and development of animal feed
  • Components - vitamins and trace minerals
  • Supplements and additives - vitamins and trace minerals
  • Swine
  • Identifying vitamin B12 needs in sows to optimize folate and methionine metabolism and the development of immunity in piglets
  • Development of a surgical technique to enable the use of pigs as a model for humans to determine the bioavailability of dietary vitamin B12 (supplements and forms in foods such as cow’s milk)
  • Study of interactions between vitamin B6, niacin and tryptophan on protein metabolism and growth of piglets after weaning
  • Study of interactions between vitamin B6 and organic and inorganic selenium during the post-puberty period on the quality of ovulation and the morphological and physiological development of the fetus in early gestation
  • Development of a surgical technique for determining the bioavailability of trace minerals (heavy metals) in pigs (organic vs. inorganic forms)
  • Transfer of trace minerals and vitamins from sows to piglets

Current Projects:

  • Bioavailability of trace minerals (heavy metals) in pigs
  • Relative importance of the transfer of trace minerals and vitamins from sows to piglets
  • Tryptophan and niacin in weanling pigs
  • Vitamin B6, selenium sources, reproduction and embryonic development in sows
  • Importance of vitamin B12 and homocysteine control in piglets
