About The Book

This book contains the proceedings of the 38th University of Nottingham Feed Conference, where topical issues facing the animal feed industry were addressed. Current trends in the feed industry are towards increasing globalisation, as highlighted in a paper on the Asian livestock industry, and tighter legislation, as discussed in several papers on aspects of legislation and analysis of raw materials.

To maintain a profitable animal production industry, it is necessary to consider animal responses in terms of performance, welfare and product quality. Technical papers provided the latest information on responses to nutrients by dairy cows, growing pigs, and companion animals.

Authors of all chapters are international experts in their fields and have written comprehensive analyses of current issues together with practical interpretations. This book is essential reading for all involved in animal science and production, including practitioners, advisers, researchers, students and legislators.
