Description

For undergraduate courses in Animal Nutrition.

 

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.

Features

NEW-Chapters on the nutrition and feeding of various livestock species- Penned by contributing authors who give voice to the complexity of contemporary animal nutrition.

~Provides students with the input of specialists and leading authorities on particular topics.

 

NEW-Updated, extensive citations to recent literature.

~ Reinforces the concepts of documenting statements with verifiable data from peer-reviewed scientific journals.

 

Technically complete yet highly accessible approach.

~Avoids detailed discussions of metabolic pathways and the use of chemical structures and terminology.

 

Coverage of contemporary issues.

~Discusses animal feeds, such as mad cow disease, food safety issues related to recycling of animal excreta; the use of meat meal as a feed for livestock; the harvesting of fish and krill (Antarctic shrimp) for use as animal feed, etc.

 

Environmentalist-friendly perspective of contemporary issues.

~Develops awareness of environmental and ecological effects of livestock production.

 

Exploration of the continually increasing human population coupled with rising expectations for an improved diet.

~Examines the emergence of a global economy, increased public concerns about exploitation of natural resources and environmental degradation, and continuing food safety concerns, many involving animal products (e.g. microbial contamination, BSE).

 

Discussion of “ecological nutrition”-With nutrient management to minimize environmental impacts of animal production.

~Offers students comprehensive coverage of nutritional properties of feed ingredients, including those with unique or unusual characteristics.

 

Agronomic information about the sources of feedstuffs.

~Bridges the gap between animal scientists and agronomists.

 

A global perspective.

~Considers tropical feedstuffs and feeding programs in developing countries.

 

Inclusion of exotic and wild animals in examples.

~Recognizes the increase of opportunities in zoo animal nutrition, feeding programs for endangered species, etc.

 

Chapter-ending series of questions and study guides.

~Encourages students to develop rational answers, synthesize reasonable answers, or think critically about issues and formulate opinions.

Back Cover

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
