Recent Developments in Ruminant Nutrition – 2 presents papers that discuss the advances in the different areas of ruminant nutrition. The book is comprised of 22 chapters that discuss topics such as milk production, health, and nutrition. The coverage of the text includes meeting the nutrient requirements of beef cattle in forage-based systems of production; nutrient requirements of intensively reared beef cattle; and feeding for high margins in dairy cows. The book also tackles issues concerning milk production such as photoperiodic influences on milk production in dairy cows; manipulation of milk yield with growth hormone; and the influence of level and pattern of concentrate input on milk output. The text will be of great use to researchers and professionals in the animal husbandry industry.
