Dr. Titgemeyer received the AFIA Award in Ruminant Nutrition Research in 2007. His research program studies amino acid utilization by growing cattle and has demonstrated that the efficiencies of amino acid use for growth differ among the amino acids, and is often much less than predicted by current models.
