Nanobiotechnology for the Livestock Industry: Animal Health and Nutrition is a multidisciplinary reference of nanobiotechnology applications in various sectors, including farming practices, healthcare and breeding practices, market and economic analysis/benefits, biosafety, regulation, and more. The farming practices include the role of nanobiotechnology in the handling of the livestock, maintenance of hygiene and feeding of livestock animals like nutrient delivery. The disease is considered one of the most crucial risk factors of livestock and poultry breeding. Hygienic and healthy breeding places are the foundation of the healthy growth of livestock and poultry. It is also very important for the safety and health of staff and improvement of the surrounding air and water environments. Therefore, this book includes nanobiotechnology's role in maintaining nutrient quality in meat, milk, eggs, etc. The book covers healthcare practices utilizing nanobiotechnology like maintaining and monitoring the livestock health, diagnosis and treatment of disease, monitoring drug delivery, optimizing breeding patterns, and cryopreservation of sperms and eggs. Moreover, this book highlights the market analysis and trends and how nanobiotechnology has improved the livestock market shares, by specifically focusing on various nanobiotechnological tools that have increased the livestock industry and its market shares and their importance in improving the economy of a country. Further, this book deals with nanobiotechnological products' biosafety, and regulations in livestock industries.
