 Research

Grass Fed vs. Grain Fed Steer Project

Dr. Jiuzhou Song started a research project in the fall of 2011 examining the effects of how finishing cattle on an alfalfa and orchard grass diet alters the epigenetic status of genes affecting beef quality and the fatty acid profile.  The ultimate goal of this research project is to develop methods that beef producers can use through dietary interventions to produce a highly palatable and nutritious product.
