My research aims to find natural alternatives to antibiotics in finishing cattle feed. We hope these alternatives can reduce the use of antibiotics and thus reduce chances of antimicrobial resistance. On top of that, these ingredients can maintain or improve cattle feed efficiency, meat quality, and shelf life stability, thus benefiting both producers and consumers.

You will learn the basic skills in science and pathology and expected to contribute more to your field than those who have trained you.
