2005 Innovation in Dairy Research Award Sponsor: Land O’Lakes, Purina Feed, LLC
Jeffrey M. DeFrain received a B.S. (1999) and M.S. (2001) in animal science from Kansas State University and then obtained a Ph.D. under Dr. Arnold Hippen at South Dakota State University. During his Ph.D. program, Jeff conducted a series of experiments to evaluate the effects of diets formulated to increase the supply of ketones or ketone precursors on the carbohydrate status of transition dairy cows. This research contributed to a better understanding of the interactions between diet formulation, rumen epithelial ketogenesis, glycemic status, and animal productivity of transition dairy cows. Jeff received his Ph.D. in animal science in December 2004, and is currently employed by Hubbard Dairy Services as a dairy technical consultant.
