Research Interests

Research interests include cattle, sheep and goat nutrition, forage utilization, sustainable agriculture through integrated crop/livestock farming, alternatives to antimicrobials use in ruminants, improving feed efficiency, and reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in ruminants. Currently, Dr. Anele is undertaking studies on the use of plant extracts (secondary metabolites, essential oils) and white-rot fungi extracts to alter rumen fermentation, improve feed efficiency, milk yield and composition, and mitigate GHG emissions.
