Research Project: Metabolomic Analysis of Grass-fed and Grain-fed Beef

Location: Northern Great Plains Research Laboratory

Project Number: 3064-21660-004-15-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Sep 1, 2020
End Date: Sep 30, 2022

Objective:
Use metabolomics to determine the chemical compounds in grass-fed and grain-fed beef to allow for comparisons between beef produced with these two feeding approaches.

Approach:
Beef samples from grass-fed and grain-fed Angus cattle will be analyzed using LC/MS metabolomics to determine the assortment of chemical compounds in both types of beef that can influence human health.
