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.

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.

Feedstuff Evaluation contains the proceedings of the 50th University of Nottingham Easter School in Agricultural Sciences, held at Sutton Bonington in July 1989. The book presents papers discussing a wide range of topics on the accurate evaluation of feedstuffs for livestock. Initially, systems of expressing the nutritive value of feeds are considered. Modifications to feeding value as influenced by animal factors including intake and palatability are discussed. Specific dietary ingredients, being plant polysaccharides, fats, minerals and vitamins are detailed. Prediction of the nutritive value of compound feeds and individual feeds through classical wet chemistry and the more recent NIR is assuming considerable importance in the rapid evaluation of diets. Associated with these developments is an appreciation of the relevance of both inter- and intra-laboratory variation in determinations. Finally, the need to collate information into an interactive data-base is being actively pursued. It is evident that safety of animal feeds is becoming an increasingly topical issue and the last session considered the relevance of naturally-occurring toxic factors, residues, mycotoxins and, finally, animal pathogens. Veterinarians, farmers, farm administrators, and those involved in every aspect of nutrient supply to animals will find the compendium very insightful and informative.

Addition of fats or oils rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids in poultry diets is a straightforward approach to enrich poultry products with polyunsaturated fatty acids. Consequently, there has been a great interest in using different types of fats, oils or oil seeds as feed additives in poultry nutrition. The purpose of this book is to educate the readers on the role of dietary fats in poultry on: production aspects, health effects, growth and product quality. In addition, the role of poultry food products in meeting the human requirement of much needed functional nutrients such as omega-3 fatty acids is discussed. We have also included a chapter on appropriate techniques for lipid analysis. We have attempted to include as much up to date and relevant information on the roles of fats and fatty acids in poultry nutrition, health and product quality in this book. Our intended audience for this book is graduate and undergraduate students in animal and poultry sciences together with professionals in the poultry and allied industries.

Principles of Animal Nutrition

Animals are biological transformers of dietary matter and energy to produce high-quality foods and wools for human consumption and use. Mammals, birds, fish, and shrimp require nutrients to survive, grow, develop, and reproduce. As an interesting, dynamic, and challenging discipline in biological sciences, animal nutrition spans an immense range from chemistry, biochemistry, anatomy and physiology to reproduction, immunology, pathology, and cell biology. Thus, nutrition is a foundational subject in livestock, poultry and fish production, as well as the rearing and health of companion animals. This book entitled Principles of Animal Nutrition consists of 13 chapters. Recent advances in biochemistry, physiology and anatomy provide the foundation to understand how nutrients are utilized by ruminants and non-ruminants. The text begins with an overview of the physiological and biochemical bases of animal nutrition, followed by a detailed description of chemical properties of carbohydrates, lipids, protein, and amino acids. It advances to the coverage of the digestion, absorption, transport, and metabolism of macronutrients, energy, vitamins, and minerals in animals. To integrate the basic knowledge of nutrition with practical animal feeding, the book continues with discussion on nutritional requirements of animals for maintenance and production, as well as the regulation of food intake by animals. Finally, the book closes with feed additives, including those used to enhance animal growth and survival, improve feed efficiency for protein production, and replace feed antibiotics. While the classical and modern concepts of animal nutrition are emphasized throughout the book, every effort has been made to include the most recent progress in this ever-expanding field, so that readers in various biological disciplines can integrate biochemistry and physiology with nutrition, health, and disease in mammals, birds, and other animal species (e.g., fish and shrimp). All chapters clearly provide the essential literature related to the principles of animal nutrition, which should be useful for academic researchers, practitioners, beginners, and government policy makers. This book is an excellent reference for professionals and a comprehensive textbook for senior undergraduate and graduate students in animal science, biochemistry, biomedicine, biology, food science, nutrition, veterinary medicine, and related fields. ?
