“Markus has made great strides in poultry nutrition research,” said Preston Buff, Ph.D., AFIA director of regulatory affairs. “AFIA is proud to present him with this award.”
Rodehutscord’s research focuses on minimizing the excretion of nitrogen and phosphorous and improving the efficiency of amino acid and phosphorous utilization by poultry. He coordinated the 2.1 Mio Euro GrainUp project.
Rodehutscord has published more than 86 peer-reviewed articles on poultry nutrition, served as the Metabolism and Nutrition section editor for Poultry Science and serves on multiple committees and working groups dealing with poultry science.
