This fifth edition arms readers with the latest information on nutrient metabolism and the formulation of diets from an array of available feedstuffs. The authors discuss animals' role in ecological balance, environmental stability and sustainable agriculture and food production. A new chapter on the regulation of nutrient partitioning offers a lively and timely discussion of emerging technologies in modifying and increasing efficiency of nutrient metabolism and animal food composition. A new chapter on toxic minerals in the food chain addresses the role of agricultural production animal nutrition in protecting the environment from toxic levels of minerals and nitrogen in the food chain.

The latest edition of this classic text, now in a larger format with improved artwork, continues to provide a clear and comprehensive introduction to the science and practice of animal nutrition. Animal Nutrition covers four main areas. Chapters 1-9 explain the basic chemistry and biochemistry of feed constituents, digestion and metabolism; Chapters 10-18 evaluate the energy and nutrient content of feedstuffs and discuss the assessment of nutritional requirements and ration formulation; Chapters 19-25 describe the characteristics of commonly used feedstuffs such as forages, concentrates and by-products; and the Appendix provides comprehensive tables on the composition of foods and feeding standards for dairy and beef cattle, sheep, pigs and poultry, and horses.

Feeds, Feeding, and Animal Nutrition is the first book of its kind to finally pair ration formulation software with the book to create a comprehensive learning solution. The animal feeding and nutrition industries are as computerized as any industry in the world, but the challenge has been to find software that can effectively accompany a book and give the reader everything they need to succeed. This is a deficiency that has now been addressed. The ration formulation software has the same functionality as that used in the industry today and covers each species discussed in the book. Along with the software, the book includes the most current information on animal feeding and nutrition available, including full species coverage such as four ruminants, swine, chickens, rabbits, horses, dogs, cats, trout, and catfish. The book also extensively covers dietary energy, water requirements for livestock, and feed milling.

Animal and Plant Productivity theme is a component of Encyclopedia of Food and Agricultural Sciences, Engineering and Technology Resources in the global Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS), which is an integrated compendium of twenty one Encyclopedias. The theme on Animal and Plant Productivity Science focuses on paths to improvement of animal and plant production systems at all levels from genomes to landscapes. This volume traces efforts to improve agricultural productivity and the increasingly important metrics of resilience and sustainability. It deals with the essential aspects and a myriad of issues of great relevance to our world such as Productivity, Efficiency And Resilience of Crop And Livestock Production; Sustainable Animal Production; Animal Production Systems in the Tropics; Physiology of Growth and Reproduction in Livestock; Evolution of Livestock Improvement; Monogastric Nutrition; Rumen Microbiology; Meat Science; Agroecology: environmentally sound and socially just alternatives to the industrial; farming model; Range and pasture productivity; Sustainable Crop Production: Physiology, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology; Crop Improvement("The Gene Revolution"); Ecological Economics; Agricultural Economics; Integrated Resource Management And Planning. This volume is aimed at the following five major target audiences: University and College Students Educators, Professional Practitioners, Research Personnel and Policy Analysts, Managers, and Decision Makers, NGOs and GOs.
