Description

The latest edition of this classic text has been reorganised to provide a clear and comprehensive introduction to the science and practice of animal nutrition. Animal Nutrition is split into six main sections covering: The components of food; The digestion and metabolism of nutrients; Quantifying the nutrient content of foods: digestibility, energy and protein values; The nutrient requirements of animals; The nutritional characteristics of foods; and Animal products and human nutrition. The Appendices provides comprehensive tables on the composition of foods and feeding standards for dairy and beef cattle, sheep, pigs and poultry, and horses. The text is supported by key experimental evidence throughout. Quantitative aspects of the subject are clearly explained and illustrated by worked examples. Problems and solutions have now been added to all chapters to aid student learning.
