Book release: Dynamics in animal nutrition

This book, edited by Jannes Doppenberg and Piet van der Aar of Schothorst Feed Research, addresses current topics of interest to researchers and nutritionists in animal research, the feed and allied industry.

Animal nutrition is a fast changing field of expertise. Newly developed scientific knowledge is quickly adapted to better understand the integral balance between different organs and the digestive system.
Society demands that the feed industry responds to consumer issues such as food safety, sustainability of animal production, animal health and welfare, carbon foot printing etc. via altering feeding programs.
The practising nutritionist needs to implement this vast knowledge into practical feed formulations in a cost effective way in order to produce feeds and animal products efficiently.
