Society affiliationsJAST is the official journal of the Korean Society of Animal Sciences and Technology, established in 1956.
Authors at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign looked at fatty acids in a local population river otters. Their findings suggest that molluscs make up a greater portion of the otter diet than previously thought.
Two trials were conducted to evaluate the influence of supplemental urea withdrawal on characteristics of digestion (Trial 1) and growth performance (Trial 2) of feedlot cattle during the last 40 days on feed.
Pakistan is the 4th largest milk-producing country worldwide. This study examined milking practices and yield in the local Sahiwal cow. Image courtesy of Tropenmuseum of the Royal Tropical Institute (KIT).
This study investigated changes in gene expression by dietary fat source, in both male and female growing-finishing pigs, with key focus on the INSR, IRS, PIP3, PDK1, PDE3, and FOXO1 genes.
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.
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.
