Research Project: Metabolites in Meat from Animals Grazing Cover Crops

Location: Northern Great Plains Research Laboratory

Project Number: 3064-21600-001-011-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Sep 10, 2022
End Date: Sep 9, 2024

Determine metabolites associated with meat nutritional value, which accumulate in muscle when ruminant livestock graze two types of cover crop fields.

Conduct the field study with goats then harvest them at the end of the field study, collect meat samples, and then conduct non-targeted metabolomic analysis of the meat samples, which Cooperator will oversee.
