Examines mineral recommendations and looks at how minerals are applied in poultry, pigs and ruminant feeds. For nutritionists, students and animal producers.
Featuring chapters from some of the world's leading authorities, the aim of this volume is to re-examine the current status of mineral recommendations and to look at how minerals are applied in feeds for poultry, pigs and ruminants. Re-Defining Mineral Nutrition is aimed at nutritionists and animal producers as well as students and researchers studying animal and applied biological sciences.
It also considers the effects of new legislation and pollution concerns and discusses innovative applications of minerals in animal feeds that will help to maintain performance and health within stricter guidelines. Finally, it also covers the role of minerals in various aspects of growth, nutrition, immunity and health.
This book aims to give a concise and focussed review of the current and future state of mineral nutrition in farmed species, covering poultry, pigs and ruminants.
Re-defining mineral nutrition contains chapters regarding trace minerals, sow and piglet feeding, organic minerals in pig production, minerals, diseases, immune functions, dairy cow mastitis, hen performance and antioxidants. It also discusses the future of dairy farming in the EU and the role o peptides in absorption pathways.
The book 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.
