Carstens, Gordon individual record
Professor
overview

In addition to teaching animal nutrition courses, Dr. Carstens conducts research on energy metabolism and growth and development in ruminants. Specific research areas include the regulation of growth and composition of carcass and mammary tissues by nutritional control and the use of externally administered (exogenous) growth regulators. Recent research has focused on methods to increase the ability of newborn calves to produce heat and fight off cold stress and the influence of genetic and nutritional components on this ability.
