Beef Team > Our Research
The Minnesota Beef Team has three primary
areas in which research is focused: reproductive management,
beef cattle nutrition, and beef quality.
Reproductive Management research includes
investigation focused on improving reproductive efficiency
through the use of embryo transfer, inducing twinning
to increase reproductive efficiency in beef cattle operations,
synchronizing estrus in replacement beef heifers and
cows, and determining the influence of diet and body
composition on reproductive responses.
Beef Cattle Nutrition
Beef cattle nutrition research includes
investigation on optimizing nutrient utilization for
growth and reduced environmental impact and evaluation
of alternative feeding and management practices in beef
Beef quality research includes development
of pre and/or post-weaning management practices that
enhance meat quality and safety, determining the value
of pre-conditioning programs, and evaluation of factors
that predispose beef to greening of injection-site lesions.
Where We Do It
The beef team conducts its research not
only on the St. Paul Campus of the University of Minnesota,
but also throughout the state at the University's Research
and Outreach Centers.
