Swine nutrition is a constantly evolving field. As demand for pork products continues to grow globally and competition for grain and other feed sources becomes steep, it is increasingly important that researchers continue to explore new sustainable approaches to efficiently and effectively provide energy and key nutrients needed for healthy swine growth and development. Sustainable Swine Nutrition provides readers with the latest advances in the field while paying close attention to issues of sustainability.
Sustainable Swine Nutrition brings together the work of some of the world s leading swine nutrition experts and looks at the latest advances that will allow for responsible and sustainable swine production now and in the future. The book is divided into two sections. Section I covers fundamental elements of swine nutrition. The second section of chapters applies these fundamentals to sustainable strategies and practices. Combined, these sections bring together valuable basic nutritional and physiological science and provide the reader with practical tools to implement sustainable approaches to swine production.
Essential information for both animal scientists and the animal agriculture industry, Sustainable Swine Nutrition, is an invaluable single volume resource on the latest advances in sustainable nutrition.
