Animal nutrition : from theory to practice

See all formats and editions

Nutrition is the key driver of animal health, welfare and production.

In agriculture, nutrition is crucial to meet increasing global demands for animal protein and consumers' demands for cheaper meat, milk and eggs and higher standards of animal welfare.

For companion animals, good nutrition is essential for quality and length of life.

Animal Nutrition examines the science behind the nutrition and feeding of the major domesticated animal species: sheep, beef cattle, dairy cattle, deer, goats, pigs, poultry, alpacas, horses, dogs and cats.

It includes introductory chapters on digestion and feeding standards, followed by chapters on each animal containing information on digestive anatomy and physiology, evidence-based nutrition and feeding requirements and common nutritional and metabolic diseases.

Clear diagrams, tables and breakout sections make this text readily understandable, and it will be of value to tertiary students of animal nutrition and to practicing veterinarians, livestock consultants, producers and nutritionists.
