About this book

The  MINERALS Directory provides comprehensive information on mineral nutrition for animals,  It is the first to present all the information you need on minerals for animal nutrition in a simple and easy to use format.

Each mineral is reviewed wtih an introduction to the element and its key natural sources, its function and benefits to the animals, details on absorption, metabolism, excretion and adequate status. Requirements, deficiency and toxicity are covered by species ranging from poultry, pig, cattle, sheep to horses, rabbits and dogs. Best commercial estimates are given along with NRC requirements. Interrelationships such as antagonism and synergies are also covered. Finally a useful table presents information on the levels found in common feedstuffs and inorganic sources where available.

The VITAMINS Directory provides a functional, easy to read review of vitamins in animal nutrition. It is presented in a simple, colour-coded format with comprehensive and clear information designed to help save time searching for information. Each vitamin is reviewed by target species, natural sources, function and benefits, absorption, metabolism, storage, excretion, adequate status. Requirements (NRC) and best commerical estimates and deficiency are reviewed for ruminants, pigs, poultry, dogs, cats, horses, fish and rabbits. Toxicity, interrelationships (antagonism, synergies) and feed additive information (physical form, storage, processing losses and EU legal requirements for inclusion into livestock feeds) is provided. Finally a table of levels of each vitamin in common feedstuffs and useful summary tables completes this valuable reference guide to help improve your feed decisions.

Mineral and vitamin nutrition is a small part (in number) of the complete nutrition of an animal. It can often be ignored and yet it is critical to the well-being and top performance of every animal. The correct mineral and vitamin balance of animals is essential for maintaining normal body function to support growth, performance, immunity and fertility requirements. An increased supply of specific minerals and vitamins can sometimes have a positive effect, such as immunity status or hoof quality.

These essential directories use the acclaimed Context Directory style, covering all the major, trace, minor and toxic minerals, vitamins and vitamins-like substances in any easy to read style and A-Z listing. They are bound with a robust polypropylene cover and handy lie flat style. These are essential reference tools for any nutritionist and those involved in the animal mineral supply business.

Excellent reference guides for all advisors, nutritionists, salespersons, farmers and students
