Baumgard’s primary research emphasis has been on the metabolic and endocrine consequences of heat stress in growing and lactating animals. Lance and his research team have made a number of novel discoveries with regards to changes in carbohydrate, lipid and protein metabolism during heat stress. These previously unexplained changes in post-absorptive nutrient partitioning reduce milk yield more than reduced feed intake and negative energy balance predict. At Iowa State University, Lance’s Environmental Physiology efforts have evaluated how heat stress alters post-absorptive fuel selection in
