Aspects affecting feed intake and diet selection
Voluntary feed intake of pigs and how it works, enables a more precise formulation of pig feeds. This encourages the ingestion of sufficient but not excessive amounts of nutrients to optimise performance. This reference textbook is based on scientific results and covers all aspects of feed intake in pigs.
This book contains up-to-date reviews by renowned scientific experts on different aspects affecting voluntary feed intake and diet selection in pigs. Different physiological factors involved in feed intake regulation, ranging from the sensorial evaluation of feeds, to the hormonal and metabolic regulation of feed intake and the impact of pig health are discussed. The book also deals with aspects such as genetic background of the animals, feeder design, environmental conditions, and the use of models to predict feed intake.
An ideal book for academics, researchers, students and industry professionals involved in the field of pig nutrition and pig production.
