Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bridging the gap between animal science and agronomy, Applied Animal Nutrition: Feeds and Feeding, third edition, enables the reader to learn and master the steps necessary to providing proper nutrition of all types. Feeds are discussed in their agronomic features, nutritive value, special properties, processing needs, suitability for particular kinds of livestock, the presence of deleterious or toxic factors, and any other considerations that relate to their utility as feeds. Features:
  • The latest information on BSE or Mad Cow disease
  • Completely revised to offer the most up-to-date research findings available
  • New material written by experts in specific nutrition fields, such as dairy cattle nutrition, swine nutrition, as well as companion animal nutrition and wild and exotic animal nutrition

Synopsis:

This book has a two-fold objective-(1) to describe the properties of feedstuffs used in the feeding of domestic animals and, (2) to provide information on feeding practices for a variety of domestic and exotic animal species. An environmentalist-friendly perspective of contemporary issues helps readers develop awareness of environmental and ecological effects of livestock production. For professional animal nutritionists, extension agents, veterinarians, and livestock producers.
