About this book

This is the second edition of The MINERALS Directory, which was the first to present all the information you need on minerals for animal nutrition in a simple and easy to use format. Using the acclaimed Context Directory style it covers all the major, trace, minor and toxic minerals in any easy to read style and A-Z listing. This excellent reference guide is now published with a robust, polypropylene cover.

Sections include 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.

An ideal reference guide for all advisors, nutritionists, salespersons, farmers and students
