About The Book

Following demand and the success of previous compendia, it was decided to bring together chapters with the common theme of non-ruminant nutrition under one cover to provide a very convenient reference for a wide range of subjects under this general heading. The book is an extremely informative collection of reviews of high scientific quality, which will appeal to teachers, students, researchers, and the animal feed industry worldwide.

The chapters within this book have all been published previously in 'Recent Advances in Animal Nutrition'. These texts are the proceedings of the annual University of Nottingham Feed Conference.
