The next section is devoted to mineral feeding of various species of farm animals such as cattle, sheep, pigs, and poultry. This text concludes by looking at methods of controlling the adequacy of farm animals' mineral diet. This book will be of interest to students and practitioners in agriculture and food science. A unique feature of this book is the description of the practical implications of mineral deficiencies and excesses, and of the conditions that might result. A large number of classic photographs illustrate mineral deficiencies and toxicities in farm livestock, laboratory animals and humans. This book explores the biological function and metabolism of minerals in the body, as well as mineral feeding of various species of farm animals. Topics range from water metabolism and mineral composition of feeds to the physiological role of macroelements such as calcium and potassium and microelements such as iron and Edition: 1.

in summary the new textbook offers an excellent over view on mineral nutrition of livestock. The book is an essential resource for researchers and students in animal nutrition, agriculture, feed industry and veterinary medicine, and useful reference for those concerned with human nutrition and environmental protection. The concept of the 'mineral footprint' of livestock production is introduced and methods of mineral feeding that lower environmental pollution are presented. Opportunities and problems in manipulating the mineral content of livestock to improve the mineral status of consumers are also addressed. The book is an essential resource for researchers and students in animal nutrition, agriculture and veterinary medicine, and a useful reference for those concerned with human nutrition . "In summary the new textbook offers an excellent overview on mineral nutrition of livestock. The book is an essential resource for researchers and students in animal nutrition, agriculture, feed industry and veterinary medicine, and a useful reference for those concerned with human nutrition Price: $ The fourth edition of this important book covers the advances in livestock mineral nutrition, updated with more illustrations and additional material on the relationship between livestock and man. Recent developments are discussed, such as increasing the ‘mineral value’ of feeds by the use of additives and enhancing mineral availability through the use of organic sources of trace elements.
