Animal feedstuffs and feed compounding industry professionals, farm animal nutritionists, advanced undergraduate and graduate students in animal science and veterinary science, researchers in animal nutrition and mammalian livestock physiology.
This textbook describes research in modelling nutrient use in farm animals, from cellular to ecosystem level. The chapters are developed from edited and revised versions of papers and reviews presented to a satellite meeting of the 9th International Symposium on Ruminant Physiology, held in South Africa.
