Accurate nutrition to young pigs under commercial conditions
The nutrition of the young pig is one of the most active scientific fields of swine nutrition throughout the world. Its immense importance to the profitability of any pig production is demonstrated by the fact that maximal early growth in pigs, which depends on correct nutrition, is extremely efficient, yet hardly realised in most commercial situations.
This book explains how to provide accurate nutrition to young pigs under commercial conditions, in order to achieve maximum growth performance at minimal cost. It includes coverage of nutritional physiology, nutrient requirements and idiosyncrasies, ingredients and diets, feed programs and management systems.
Ideal for those involved in the feed and pig production industries. Also researchers and students in animal nutrition.
