Papers from some of the world's leading authorities.
Featuring papers from some of the world's leading authorities, the aim of this volume is to re-examine the current status of mineral recommendations and to look at how minerals are applied in feeds for poultry, pigs and ruminants. Re-Defining Mineral Nutrition is aimed at nutritionists and animal producers as well as students and researchers studying animal and applied biological sciences.
It also considers the effects of new legislation and pollution concerns, and discusses innovative applications of minerals in animal feeds that will help to maintain performance and health within stricter guidelines. Finally, it also covers the role of minerals in various aspects of growth, nutrition, immunity and health.
