Gut Efficiency; The Key Ingredient in Ruminant Production Elevating Animal Performance and Health
Cattle Gut Efficiency - Key Ingredient in Ruminant Production Elevating Bovine Performance & Cattle Herd Health

Global dairy and beef production has become an extremely competitive industry. World dairy production is predicted to grow significantly by 2020 with emergence of new consumers in developing countries, milk, cheese and meat production in established markets now has to fulfil consumer needs plus product supply, cattle herd health, food safety and minimal low-carbon emission environmental impact on global warming.

Recent extreme increases in feed costs emphasizes the key role of rumen and digestive efficiency management in cattle production economics. Ruminant breeders and producers must seek new technologies to improve performance efficiency, animal health and production costs.

This textbook includes reviews by world-leading authorities in the field of ruminant nutrition and management for the benefit of dairy and beef farmers, bovine nutritionists, veterinarians and breeders as well as agriculture students and scientific researchers studying animal and applied biological sciences.
The small size of this specialist review belies the density of information contained within. The whole topic is very important as livestock farming margins come under increasing pressure, plus food safety issues have become of critical importance to consumers.

Production Diseases in Farm Animals
Includes CD of Proceedings of International Conference on Production Diseases in Farm Animals
Production Diseases in Farm Animals plus CD of Proceedings of 12th International Conference on Production Diseases in Farm Animals Michigan USA 2004

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
