Production Diseases in Farm Animals

Includes CD of Proceedings of International Conference on Production Diseases in Farm Animals
Production Diseases in Farm Animals 2006 Edition 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
