Synopsis

It is now well recognised that enzymes can be added to animal feeds to improve the efficiency of raw material digestion. This book provides a review of current knowledge of such enzymes, including their mode of action, interaction with intestinal physiology, economic and environmental impacts and application of technology into diets for different farm animal species.

Review

Sixteen chapters review the actions of enzymes added to animal feed including their mode of action, interaction with intestinal physiology, economic and environmental impacts, and the application of technology into diets for different farm animal species. Particular attention is paid to the ruminant sector. A sampling of topics includes enzyme supplementation of poultry diets based on viscous cereals, the role and efficacy of carbohydrase enzymes in pig nutrition, microbial interactions in the response to exogenous enzyme utilization, and liquid application systems for feed enzymes.

Provides a review of current knowledge of enzymes, which are added to animal feeds, including their mode of action, interaction with intestinal physiology, and environmental impacts and application of technology into diets for different farm animal species.
