Published by National Research Council - Subcommittee on Swine Nutrition

Optimize your pork, bacon, ham or pet pig production with this authoritative review on swine nutritional needs and dietary ingredient composition from the National Research Council.

Nutrient Requirements of Swine - Nutrition, Feeding & Diets for production management of sows and boars

This reference has guided nutritionists and other professionals in teaching and the pig and feed industries in developing and implementing nutritional and feeding programs for swine. The pork industry has undergone considerable changes since the previous edition was published and some of the requirements and recommendations set forth at that time are no longer relevant or appropriate.

The hardback book is complemented by free online resources to determine the nutrient requirements of swine at all stages of development, to evaluate diet, and to calculate nutrient excretion. The EXTRA ADDED resources include:

Computer models for calculation of nutrient requirements, diet optimisation & nutrient excretion.
Case studies to help users understand uses & applications of the computer models.

This new, revised 400-page edition of the Nutrient Requirements of Swine builds on the previous editions published by the National Research Council. A great deal of new research has been published during the last 15 years and there is a large amount of new information for many nutrients. In addition to a thorough and current evaluation of the literature on the energy and nutrient requirements of swine in all stages of life, this volume includes information about feed ingredients from the biofuels industry and other new ingredients, requirements for digestible phosphorus and concentrations of it in feed ingredients, a review of the effects of feed additives and feed processing, and strategies to increase nutrient retention and thus reduce fecal and urinary excretions that could contribute to environmental pollution. The tables of feed ingredient composition are significantly updated.

Nutrient Requirements of Swine represents a comprehensive review of the most recent information available on swine nutrition and ingredient composition that will allow efficient, profitable, and environmentally conscious swine production. It will provide you with the most comprehensive review of research-based information on swine nutrition. This new edition also provides guidance on efficient and environmentally aware agricultural practices.

Fertility & Infertility in Pig Herds
Nutritional Approaches to Arresting a Decline in Fertility in Pigs & Poultry

Continued genetic development of pigs and poultry has been the foundation of profitable production within a competitive market. However, the challenges of these production increases have undoubtedly taken their toll on reproductive function in all breeding livestock, with the incidence of infertility increasing at an alarming rate. For example, it has recently been estimated that over 40% of sows are culled due to fertility problems, compared to just 2% with feet and leg issues.
This edited collection of papers is taken from a series of seminars, devoted to bringing together some of the world’s leading authorities in the field of pig and poultry nutrition and feeding. The fundamental aim being to re-examine the current trends in productivity in the pig and poultry industries, and to identify nutritional means to improve fertility. It considers the effects of essential nutrients in optimising productivity, and discusses innovative applications of nutrition that will help to enhance fertility. The success of such innovations within entrepreneurial integrated systems is also covered, together with the importance of producing a quality chick and piglet at birth/hatching. Finally, the role of management and the need for least cost production is discussed.
Nutritional Approaches to Arresting the decline in Fertility of Pigs and Poultry is aimed at livestock farm managers, feed industry consultants, vets, nutritionists and poultry producers as well as students and researchers studying animal and applied biological sciences.

Porcine colostrum contains essential antibodies (immunoglobulins) for the health of newborn piglets. At birth, baby pigs are born with little protective antibody defences against bacteria and viruses. Colostrum is a rich source of highly digestible nutrients, natural growth factors for the normal development of vital organs (brain, heart, pancreas, liver and kidneys) and their immature gut.

Feed costs represent around 80% of the variable costs of producing a finished pig and over 50% of total production costs. Fluctuation in feed prices has a greater impact on production costs and profitability than any other factor. Cost of production (COP) may be decreased by reducing input prices eg switching to a cheaper ration or purchasing in larger quantities, or achieved through simple practical actions to minimise feed wastage and improve efficiency of feedstuffs utilisation.

    Production Diseases in Farm Animals plus CD of Proceedings of International Conference on Production Diseases in Farm Animals Michigan USA High producing farm animals are permanently challenged by a variety of factors: lack of proper nutrition (deficiency, excess, toxicity), housing systems, infections and stress. The incidence, course and outcome of production diseases are changing continuously. Therefore, new information on prevention, diagnosis and treatment of production diseases is needed.

    These problems are complicated by the discussion of animal welfare, the rapid changes in agricultural production and the economics of production. The following key topics are handled: alternatives to growth-promoting antibacterial agents; chronic inflammation and animal production; animal behaviour and welfare in intensive production systems; epidemiology of production diseases; new techniques in immunoprophylaxis; nutrition-immunology and production-immunology relationships; phosphorus nutrition - animal health and environmental concerns; application of genomics to production disease; role of specific fatty acids in animal health, reproduction, and performance; trace mineral nutrition and metabolism.
