About this book

The Ruminant section is concerned with improving efficiency of dairy systems. The First chapter discusses effects of nutrition on metabolic health and reproduction. The second highlights the role of carnitine in energy metabolism. The third and fourth chapters provide updates on responses to dietary starch and amino acids. The fifth reviews techniques for manipulating rumen fermentation. The sixth chapter explains how to optimize calf and heifer rearing to enhance lifetime performance.

The general section starts with a chapter on recent developments in feed technology across species. The second explores the potential use of insects for animal feed. The third discusses important indicators of animal health and welfare.

The non-ruminant section is concerned with health and nutrition of pigs and poultry. The first chapter describes the impact of porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus. The second provides guidance on how to improve performance at the lower end of the production scale. The third reviews use of fermented feeds for pigs. The fourth discusses updates from the 2012 NRC guidelines. The fifth shows how processing affects feed efficiency in pigs and poultry. The final chapter provides an overview of current thinking on gilt management and nutrition.

All chapters are written by international experts and provide comprehensive analysis of issues alongside practical applications. This book is essential reading for anyone involved in the livestock industry, including nutritionists, feed suppliers, researchers, consultants, animal science students, legislators and veterinary practitioners.
