Summary and Info
The efficient nutrition of both farm and leisure species of animals is essential for their production, health and well-being. This volume contains the edited proceedings of the 22nd University of Nottingham Feed Manufacturers Conference and it seeks to reflect this concern. In addition to the usual ruminant and non-ruminant farm species, it includes papers dealing with nutrition of turkeys, gamebirds, horses and pigs. The first part deals with general aspects of nutrition and considers vitamin E and free radical formation and their possible implications for animal nutrition, the problems of dealing with raw ingredient variability and the use of European legumes in pig and poultry diets. The book then looks at pig nutrition and considers both novel approaches to growth promotion and the acidification of pig diets. In the section dealing with poultry nutrition there are chapters on the nutrient requirements of turkeys to meet current market demands, mineral and trace element requirements of poultry and the response of laying hens to energy and amino acids. A section on ruminant nutrition discusses prediction of the metabilizable energy content of compound feeds, nutrient allowances and alternative approaches to the characterization of feedstuffs. The volume concludes with a section discussing the nutrition of alternative species. The work is intended to be of value to researchers, producers, students and workers in the feedstuffs industry
