Conference Overarching Themes

  • GI microbial ecology, the microbiome, and gut physiology spanning from microbial- host interactions to an update on methane production and mineral interactions
  • Whole animal microbiome and integration of effects across systems including the central nervous system, lactation, reproduction, respiration, and immunity
  • Post-absorptive physiological impacts of nutrients on cellular signaling
  • Inflammation, metabolic endocrinology, metabolomics, and novel regulators of physiology and metabolism
  • Genomics and epigenetic impacts on ruminant physiology and efficiency
  • Insights from precision technology and data science and their application to ruminant physiology and management
  • Integration of environment, physiology, behavior, wellbeing, and welfare including heat stress and climate change
