Changes in the pig industry mean that it is becoming even more important to keep abreast of developments in science and technology. Major changes in legislation concerned with animal welfare and food safety have greatly affected pig production systems, particularly in Europe. The development of modern genotypes has necessitated a revaluation of the ways in which pigs respond to nutrients under different environmental conditions.
The chapters of this book have all been previously published in Recent Advances in Animal Nutrition, which is the annual proceedings of the University of Nottingham Feed Manufacturers Conference.
This book provides a convenient reference source on pig nutrition that will be valuable to students, teachers, research workers, advisory staff, farmers and many others.
