Covers theory of poultry nutrition making it easier to recognise problems. Including info on different species, vitamins, minerals, anatomy, health and enzymes.
This is the most up to date, complete and practical guide to chicken nutrition that you can buy.
It covers the underlying theory of poultry nutrition rather than providing step-by-step methodology for formulating poultry diets. If the underlying principles are understood, it makes it easier to recognise problems within this field and to be equipped to solve any problems.
With the most important aspects of the diet accounting for the largest proportion of the costs, this book focuses on areas such as energy protein and key minerals. When feeding poultry the aim should be to maximise the profitability of the flock as a whole. If this aim is not met the high performing individuals may well be underfed and not able to perform to their optimum potential.
Beginning as a guide for an introductory course in chicken nutrition this has developed into a full book detailing chicken nutrition. It covers nutrients, water, energy, protein, vitamins and minerals, as well as detailing chicken anatomy and the health of the birds. It goes into more detail regarding enzymes, scientific process and effective feed formulation.
The objective of the book is to teach the golden rules of poultry nutrition and the information is suitable for poultry producers and practitioners, as well as university students.
Rick Kleyn is a consulting nutritionist most active in Africa but also spends time in most countries in Europe and so his wealth of practical world-wide knowledge is reflected in this book.
Rick has been running introductory courses on poultry nutrition for the past decade. They have been attended by hundreds of people from all over the world. This book represents material for this course that has evolved over 15 years of development.
