Couverture
CABI, 2008 - 302 pages
This book describes how animals obtain, digest and use food and nutrients; how nutrient requirements can be quantified and how nutrient use can affect the environment. The 18 chapters include discussions on nutritional ecology, the nutritive value of animal foods, methods of evaluating nutrient availability in foods, physicochemical composition and digestibility of forages and cereal grains, the nutritive value of concentrates, secondary substances in concentrates and roughages, digestion and nutrient supply, water use and requirements, minerals, vitamins, food intake, energy and protein requirements, feed ration formulation, measurement of nutritional status, the environmental impact of animal feeding on the environment, nutritional genomics, the effect of feed processing on animal responses and feed mill design and management. The book is intended for senior undergraduate or postgraduate readers with a basic understanding of intermediary metabolism and digestive physiology and anatomy.
