Recent Advances in Animal Nutrition 1988 focuses on how feeds affect animal nutrition. The book first discusses problems of raw ingredient variability; European legumes in diets for non-ruminants; and the implications of vitamin E and free radical formation for animal nutrition. The text also underscores approaches to enhance growth in pigs. Growth hormone injection, enzyme supplementation, somatostatin immunization, and probiotics are noted. The book then highlights the nutritional requirements of turkeys to meet market demands. Early bodyweight and subsequent growth rate; nutrition and meat yields; commercial recommendations; and traditional farm-fresh turkeys are discussed. The text also discusses the mineral and trace element requirements of poultry; response of laying hens to energy and amino acids; and prediction of the metabolizable energy content of compound feeds and nutrient allowances for ruminants. The selection is a vital source of data for readers interested in studying animal nutrition.
