Ayanna Harrison Real Pork Trust Consortium

My research involves characterizing the effects of alternative grower/finisher feeds on the growth and metabolism of Berkshire pigs. I will employ Osborne F.I.R.E feeder equipment to record feed intake and weight gain in real time. In turn, I will compare this data with gene expression data related to nutrient absorption and utilization.


My role in RPTC is conducting research related to Pork Production and One Health and supporting the training efforts of the project.
