For the last few decades, poultry farming sectors have witnessed many ups and downs as a result of lack of adequate information on nutrition requirements and feeding programs for individual poultry species. However, compared to other types of livestock sectors, poultry farming industry has advanced in terms of technologies, improved productivity, and consistent improvements in nutrition. Poultry nutrition and other management practices have improved through education expansion, trainings, competition, and survival instincts.Success in poultry farming mainly depends on the type, source, and quality of the feedstuffs. Poultry feeds account for the largest share of the overall poultry production cost incurred. Fortunately, poultry feed requirements are known and there are different standards set to guide the farmer on how to provide the best feeds to their flock. However, poultry feed nutrient compositions differ from one type of ingredient to another and this makes it difficult for the farmers to provide the right feedstuffs that meet nutrients requirements for their flocks. Putting into consideration these factors and other potential problems that may affect poultry production and feeding programs, this book has been prepared to provide the right information on various poultry nutrition practices and have suggested practical nutrients levels required by different poultry species. This book has been prepared to serve as a reference and guide to different poultry farmers, poultry feed formulators, poultry stockmen, agricultural students taking courses on poultry nutrition, and other field researchers trying to find out some answers concerning various problems associated with poultry nutrition. This book can also be of great value in extension work, for teaching and to provide advice on various technical aspects concerning poultry feed processing industry and other related agribusiness activities.This book has ten chapters, each discussing on specific poultry nutrition topic. Chapter one and two mainly discuss on principles and basic components of poultry nutrition. Chapters three and four deal with various nutrition requirements for different poultry species (chickens, turkey, geese, and ducks). Chapter five and six deals with poultry feed nutrients deficiencies and contaminants respectively. Chapter seven, chapter eight and chapter nine discuss on poultry feed evaluation, future trend and development in poultry nutrition, biotechnology applications in poultry nutrition, respectively. Chapter ten discusses on diversity and characterization of poultry feeds. There is a list of selected references at the end of the book. These references provide the reader with optimum entrance to literature covering reports on extensive research on poultry feed and nutrition. The author was obliged to researchers worldwide that have initiated the practical and experimental research from which the information outlined in this book was derived from.

Developments in poultry science continue at an ever increasing rate. In parallel, poultry production has, from comparatively humble beginnings, little more than 50 years ago, emerged to become one of the world's major livestock enterprises with consumption of poultry meat and eggs increasing in virtually every country. Accordingly it is crucial that those involved in all aspects of the industry are kept informed of relevant issues.

Recent Advances in Animal Nutrition — 1986 focuses on developments in the compositions of animal feeds. The book first discusses studies on the fat content of human diet. The text also looks at future trends in the marketing of animal products with particular reference to fats. The book then discusses the manipulation of fat characteristics in animal products; antinutritional factors related with dietary fats and oils; and method of analysis of feedingstuffs for the identification of crude oils. The text highlights the implications for research and the feed compounder of oils and fats determination and the implications of biotechnology for animal nutrition. The book discusses the manipulation of milk yield with growth hormone (GH). Endogenous GH and lactation potential; mechanisms underlying the galactopoietic effects of bovine growth hormone (bGH); and galactopoietic action of exogenous bGH are discussed. The text also explains near infrared reflectance analysis of forages, residues in animal products, and nutrient modulation of the immune system. The book also highlights probiotics in pig diets and use of synthetic amino acids in poultry and pig diets. The book is a good source of information for readers wanting to study the compositions of animal feeds.

Current Advances in Selenium Research and Applications

Selenium (Se) is an essential dietary trace element participating in the regulation of various physiological functions in both animals and humans through its incorporation into selenoproteins as the amino acid selenocysteine. Among many minerals Se has a special place being the most controversial trace element with a narrow gap between essentiality and toxicity. Indeed there are important environmental issues considering selenium as a pollutant from the one hand and global selenium deficiency on the other. In fact, Se deficiency is considered as a risk factor for the development of various diseases in human and animals. Decreased Se availability from soils as a result of low soil pH and usage of synthetic fertilizers is the major concern in European countries causing inadequate Se levels in food and feeds. Furthermore, it seems likely that sodium selenite used for the last 30 years as a feed supplement is not an optimal form of Se and the usage of organic selenium in animal diets could help to maintain optimal Se status as well as high immunocompetence, productive and reproductive performance.The aim of the present volume is to provide updated information on several important Se-related subjects, including Se status in Europe and ways of its improvement, advances in Se analysis and speciation in biological material, roles of selenium in poultry, pig and ruminant nutrition. Production of functional Se-enriched food, the relationship between selenium and mycotoxins, polyunsaturated fatty acids as well as reoviruses are also addressed. This collection of articles will provide nutritionists, veterinarians, human doctors, researchers and any other readers with new insights into the exciting world of the goddess of the moon - SELENIUM.
