Congratulations to Dr. Rajesh Jha :)

Rajesh Jha (HNFAS) recently received a highly competitive grant from the National Pork Board (NPB). This grant will explore the nutritional characteristics and structural matrix of a coproduct from bio-fuel plants, distiller's dried grains with solubles (DDGS). The project's findings will also help to determine appropriate enzymes and dose levels that can effectively degrade corn DDGS; thereby increasing its utilization as feedstuffs for pigs, leading to a reduction in the cost of swine feeds and increasing environmental sustainability. Rajesh was also funded with another grant from a multinational company to explore the effects of multi-enzymes and probiotics on the growth performance, nutrient utilization, and gut health of broiler chickens fed co-product-based fibrous diets. He has been working extensively to explore opportunities for using alternative feedstuffs in animal feeding programs, thereby developing cost-effective and sustainable animal production systems. He has successfully evaluated a wide range of alternative feedstuffs, including some local feedstuffs of Hawai'i.
