This study reports positive effects of dietary conjugated linoleic acid on milk yield and immune status in sows and piglets.
These findings indicate that dietary supplementation with 5.0% citrus pulp and B. subtilis fermentation biomass could improve feed efficiency, nutrient digestibility, fecal microflora, and cost savings in weanling pigs.
The authors looked at the effects of flaked vs. grounded concentrate on the performance, characteristics and operating expense of Hanwoo steers.
Authors at the Central Sheep and Wool Research Institute in India looked at the effects of timing and depth of trans-cervical artificial insemination on the fertility of Bharat Merino sheep.
The health benefits of dietary omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3 PUFA) are well-reported in humans. This study found that a diet enriched with n-3 PUFA mitigated immune stress in pigs during weaning.
In this study involving Sprague-Dawley rats, the researchers looked at the role of ghrelin in the pancreatic exocrine response. Photo by Jean-Etienne Minh-Duy Poirrier.
Aims & scope
Journal of Animal Science and Technology (JAST) is a peer-reviewed, open access, online journal publishing original research, review articles and notes in all fields of animal science.
The Korean Society of Animal Sciences and Technology (KSAST) was founded in 1956 and currently has more than 1,500 members representing Animal Science Associations across the country.
KSAST is dedicated to the development of theory and technology related to animal production, and cooperation between academia, research, and farms for the promotion of animal-related issues.
Dr. Choi is currently a Professor in the School of Biotechnology at YeungNam University in South Korea.
He has broad research interests and utilizes interdisciplinary approaches to explore the benefits and advantages of in vitro cell culture system of bovine muscle stem cells, and investigates the molecular mechanism of muscle growth, differentiation, and recovery in humans as well as animals.
He has served as the Vice President for Research at YeungNam University, and is currently a member of the Expert Committee in the National Science and Technology Council in Korea. Prof. Choi has been the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Animal Science and Technology since the year of 2012.
