Animal Nutrition is a core text for undergraduates in Animal Science, Veterinary Science, Agriculture, Biology and Biochemistry studying this subject. It also provides a standard reference text for agricultural advisers, animal nutritionists and manufacturers of animal feeds.
The latest edition of this classic text continues to provide a clear and comprehensive introduction to the science and practice of animal nutrition. The text is supported by key experimental evidence throughout. Quantitative aspects of the subject are clearly explained and illustrated by worked examples. Chapters that deal with the calculation of requirements include problems and solutions to aid student learning. Other chapters include essay type questions that students can use as a guide to revision.
The new edition of Animal Nutrition has been completely updated and has been reorganised to present the subject in six sections:
The Appendix provides comprehensive tables on the composition of foods and the latest feeding standards for dairy and beef cattle, sheep, pigs and poultry, and horses.
