· New Chapter 13 (Toxic Minerals in the Food Chain) addresses the role of agricultural production animal nutrition in protecting the environment from toxic levels of minerals and nitrogen in the food chain.
· New Chapter 16 (Regulation of Nutrient Partitioning) provides a lively and timely discussion of emerging technologies in modifying and increasing efficiency of nutrient metabolism and animal food composition.
· Heightened attention to the environment has been accompanied by continued advances in knowledge of food animal nutrition as a sustaining partner, not only in maintaining a stable environment, but as a vehicle for improving human nutrition worldwide.
· This new edition will include electronic images and animations depicting various processes in nutrient digestion, metabolism, photographs of signs of specific nutrient deficiencies in animals, and other powerful learning tools.
· Unique text in that it covers both fundamental nutrition and applied animal feeding all in one book. The design is flexible so a course could focus on one of the two areas, dependent upon the focus of the course.
