For courses in Animal Nutrition.
Feeds and Nutrition and Feeds and Nutrition Digest were written to usher the livestock industry into the 21st Century. In addition to the complete coverage of feeds and feeding, these books contain futuristic information on biochemistry, pollution and environmental quality, biological control of pests, conservation of energy, care of high producing animals in confinement, animal behavior and welfare, and sustainable agriculture. Feeds and Nutrition covers both the fundamentals of nutrition and the art of livestock feeding, and narrows the gap between nutrition research and application. It contains 1,552 pages, and 721 illustrations-379 of which are in full color. A total of 54 of the colored pictures are from originals made especially for this book by the noted artist, Tom Phillips. Feeds and Nutrition Digest is a condensation of the complete edition. It eliminates much of the technical and accentuates practical application. It has 800 pages, and 378 black-and-white illustrations.
