Description

This book is a textbook for students and a useful guide for farmers, their advisers and applied nutritionists which presents the modern theory and practice of ruminant nutrition. The metabolizable energy system and the new degradable protein system make it possible to achieve greater efficiency and cost-effectiveness in feeding cattle and sheep but previously these systems have been described mainly in scientific terms. The text sets out the new systems in a concise and readable form with worked examples so that everyone - including livestock farmers and students of animal production - can follow the theory and exploit the advantages.show more
