About The Book

Featuring papers from some of the world's leading authorities, the fundamental 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.

It also considers the affects 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, health and nutrition.
