This practical book provides crucial information necessary to formulate diets with appropriate amounts of amino acids, minerals, and vitamins. The factors that influence how well animals obtain these critical nutrients and methods for determining bioavailability are reviewed in this comprehensive text. In addition, data from both ruminants and nonruminants are included as well as established estimates of bioavailability for particular feed stuffs and feed supplements.
Graduate students, faculty and researchers in animal sciences and animal feeding and nutrition. This book should be bought by members of the animals husbandry industry and used by the American Society of Animal Science, the American Dairy Science Association, and the American Feed Industry Association.
