CLIFF-GRADS 2020 SCIENCE COLLABORATION SERIES – THEMATIC SESSION ON RUMINANT SYSTEMS
The third student session of the 2020 CLIFF-GRADS Science Collaboration series was held 23 September 2020. The topic was “Ruminant Systems” and was open to alumni of the CLIFF-GRADS programme.
CLIFF-GRADS Alumni (Muhammed Arowolo of Nigeria, Babak Darabighane of Iran, Juan de Jesus Vargas Martinez of Colombia, Abraham Abera Feyissa of Ethiopia and Bulelani Nangamso Pepeta of South Africa) shared and discussed their PhD research with their peers. Of interest to the participants was the role rumen microbes play in the nutrition and health status of ruminants, as well as in the production of the greenhouse gas methane. Participants also discussed developing strategies needed to mitigate methane emissions from ruminant animals. The session featured guest speaker, Dr. Sinead Leahy, Senior Scientist at New Zealand Agricultural Greenhouse Gas Research Centre (NZAGRC).
