Genre: Technology & Engineering

Nutrition and Lactation in the Dairy Cow is the proceedings of the 46th University of Nottingham Easter School in Agricultural Science. Said symposium was concerned with the significant advances in the field of nutrition and lactation in the dairy cow. The book is divided in five parts. Part I deals with the principles behind nutrition and lactation of cows. Part II discusses the cow’s nutrient interactions; responses to nutrients that yield protein and energy; and the influence of nutrient balance and milk yields. Part III tackles the efficiency of energy utilization in cows and its relation to milk production. Part IV talks about food intake of cows and the factors that affect it, while Part V deals with the different feeding systems for cows. The text is recommended for those involved in raising cows and dairy production, especially those who would like to know more and make studies about the relationship of nutrition and lactation of cows.

Nutrient Requirements of Dairy Cattle

Author: Subcommittee on Dairy Cattle Nutrition
Publisher: National Academies Press
ISBN: 9780309515214
Release Date: 2001-01-23
Genre: Technology & Engineering

This widely used reference has been updated and revamped to reflect the changing face of the dairy industry. New features allow users to pinpoint nutrient requirements more accurately for individual animals. The committee also provides guidance on how nutrient analysis of feed ingredients, insights into nutrient utilization by the animal, and formulation of diets to reduce environmental impacts can be applied to productive management decisions. The book includes a user-friendly computer program on a compact disk, accompanied by extensive context-sensitive "Help" options, to simulate the dynamic state of animals. The committee addresses important issues unique to dairy science-the dry or transition cow, udder edema, milk fever, low-fat milk, calf dehydration, and more. The also volume covers dry matter intake, including how to predict feed intake. It addresses the management of lactating dairy cows, utilization of fat in calf and lactation diets, and calf and heifer replacement nutrition. In addition, the many useful tables include updated nutrient composition for commonly used feedstuffs.

Beef Cattle Feeding and Nutrition

Author: Tilden Perry
Publisher: Elsevier
ISBN: 9780323152143
Release Date: 2012-12-02
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Beef Cattle Feeding and Nutrition is the third in a series of books on animal feeding and nutrition. These books are designed to keep readers abreast of the rapid developments in feeding and nutrition. These developments have resulted in changes in diets, the use of new feed processing methods, improved use of by-product feeds, and more supplementation with minerals, vitamins, amino acids, and nonprotein nitrogen compounds. The book is organized into four parts. Part I focuses on the nutrient requirements of beef cattle. Beginning with a review of rumen physiology and energy requirements, the remaining chapters discuss the vitamin, mineral, and protein, requirements of beef cattle. Part II on feedingstuffs includes studies on pasture and other forages; hay and haylage making; silage and crops for silage; and concentrates for beef cattle. Part III includes studies on breeding herd nutrition and management; and milk production and calf performance. Part IV on cattle finishing covers cattle finishing systems; feedlot disease; and economics of cattle feeding.

Nutrition and Feeding of Organic Cattle

Author: Robert Blair
Publisher: CABI
ISBN: 9781845937720
Release Date: 2011
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Organic cattle farming is continuing to increase, backed by consumer organisations and governments. This book addresses the feed sources suitable for rearing organic cattle, both meat and dairy. Beginning with an overview of the general principles of organic cattle production and of cattle nutrition, the book goes on to discuss the constituents of suitable feeds and their implications: the effects of introducing diets for organic cattle, the effect on meat or milk quality and breed selection. The books also provides a source of peer-reviewed references on the organic feeding of cattle, drawn from international scientific literature.

Genre: Technology & Engineering

Recent Advances in Animal Nutrition-1978 is a collection of papers that tackles various topics concerning livestock feeding. The book presents a total of 12 materials that cover different livestock, particularly poultry, pigs, and dairy cows. The text first covers poultry feeding related topics, such as the factors affecting amino acid requirements of meat birds; protein-energy interactions in broiler and turkey rations; and nutrition-disease interactions of leg weakness in poultry. Next, the book tackles pig feeding concerns, including amino acid nutrition of the pig; energy requirements of the growing pig; and processing and preparation of cereals for pig diets. The remaining chapters discuss topics relevant to dairy cow diet, such as ratios for high-yielding dairy cows; concentrate feeding of dairy cows; and complete-diet feeding of dairy cows. The text will be most useful to both researchers and practitioners of animal related disciplines, such as agriculture and veterinary medicine.

Swine Feeding and Nutrition provides detailed information on aspects of swine production. It begins with a presentation of the past, present, and future of swine industry. Then, it reviews the many factors that can affect nutrient requirements and needs. This text summarizes minerals, vitamins, proteins, amino acids, carbohydrates, fiber, fatty acids, fat, energy, water, enzymes, and antibiotics and other antimicrobial compounds in swine industry. Furthermore, it discusses the relative value of feeds for use in swine diets and the feeding requirement for baby pig, growing-finishing pigs, and the breeding herd. This book will be very valuable to beginners in swine production, established swine raisers, feed manufacturers and dealers, county agents, farm advisors and consultants, and veterinarians. Animal science and agriculture students and instructors will also find this book helpful.
