Special Issue "Interfaces between Ruminant Nutrition, Ruminant Physiology and Quality of Products"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2020.
Interests: ruminant nutrition; physiology
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Interests: ruminant lipid metabolism and milk quality
Nutrition and physiology are important research fields that contribute to the quality of final products. Understanding the interphases between both disciplines can establish a crosstalk between animal and food sciences. Very often, both are seen as two different fields, but they can actually complement each other.
The overall approach for this special issue is “from farm to fork”, including ruminant performance, ruminant metabolism, ruminant physiology, sensory analysis, and feed and food analysis.
We invite reviews and original research papers that address the use of ruminant nutrition and physiology with focus to the quality of the final product, such as dairy, beef, and fiber (wool). Moreover, contributions that make a clear link between the nutrition and physiology of ruminants to the environmental and economic sustainability of food are welcome.

Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process.
