Meeting animal nutritional requirements is extremely important in maintaining acceptable performance of neonatal, growing, finishing and breeding animals. From a practical stand point an optimal nutritional programme should ensure adequate intakes of amino acids, carbohydrates, fatty acids, minerals and vitamins by animals through a supplementation programme that corrects deficiencies in basal diets. The present book contains chapters on animal nutrition research: an overview, animal nutrition, analytical methods of animal feeding, experimental research in animal science laboratory, feed composition and its impact on animal production, modern techniques for animal feed analysis, bioactive milk proteins and peptides, ruminant nutrition of animals and nutrition and food requirements of animals. This book is an essential resource for researchers, teachers and students of animal nutrition, veterinary science, agriculture and useful reference for those concerned with animal nutrition.
