Bringing together the disciplines of mono-gastric animal production, feed, gut physiology, microbial populations & immunity for nutritionists & meat producers
This book contains an edited collection of papers, taken from a series of one day seminars, devoted to bringing together the disciplines of monogastric animal production, feed, gut physiology, microbial populations and immunity, in an understandable manner for practical nutritionists and meat producers.
It provides an overview of key elements of related disciplines, some highly technical, whilst relating the science back to practical animal production. It is intended as an update on the status of specialised topics of the gut. As animal science becomes more 'multi-factorial' in its nature, understanding across disciplines will become crucial in adapting animal production practices to meet both economic and welfare demands.
Interfacing immunity, gut health and performance is aimed at nutritionists and animal producers as well as students and researchers studying animal and applied biological sciences.
Dr. Julie Taylor-Pickard, a nutritionist, obtained her PhD specialising in post-weaned piglets with particular emphasis on enhancing gut health and immunity. Currently she initiates, supports and interprets pig research activities in Europe, specialising in providing natural solutions to optimise animal performance and efficiency. Previously she worked with pharmaceutical applications in the monogastric sector.
Dr. Lucy Tucker received her first degree in Biological Sciences from the University of Lancaster, and went on to complete a Ph.D. in monogastric nutrition and digestion at Harper Adams University College in the UK. Since 1995 she has worked in commercial animal nutrition, specialising in research, development and marketing of technical feed ingredients to improve nutrient delivery and digestion and promote gastro-intestinal heath. Based in New Zealand since 2005, she now works as a consultant nutritionist, reflecting her wide-ranging interest in topics allied to nutrition.
This book is ideal for nutritionists, animal producers, students and researchers studying animal and applied biological sciences.
