Another necessary and seminal work on its subject.
This was required reading for my eq.sports science degree, but it isn't exclusively about equine / horse nutrition.
It covers poultry, lactating dairy cows, lactating dairy goats, lactating ewes, lactating sows, as well as lactating mares.
Addresses Mono gastric animals (like us humans with one stomach) and ruminants (like cows, with more than one stomach). Covers comparative nutrition, Animal Nutrition and the Consumers of Animal Products, all manner of feedstuffs, food additives like oligosaccharides, probiotics, modifiers of rumen fermentation, and much, much more.
Two appendices - Solutions to Problems, Notes on Tables, plus extensive index.
Whilst compulsory on my eq.science course, I imagine it's even more compulsory for vet and agricultural students, and large animal vets. I know the ag students at one of my colleges definitely all used this title extensively, because it was never available in the library for any of the equine students to use as the agricultural lot would have already commandeered it for one of their essays. It's the reason I bought this book.
I never did understand why my eq science nutrition lecturer needed us all to write an essay on the nutrition of lactating cows, but she did. I most certainly wouldn't have got through it without this book.
Retailing used online at a minimum of £35, grab this very in-demand (by lecturers) 693 page long tome for less than that here today. I bought it new for £45, so it isn't like I'm making anything from it.
Not a mark on any pages, covers show the most minor of handling signs, and some shelf-dust/marks to the cut ends of the pages.
***I'm having a clear-out of a lot of my many, many equestrian books, covering everything from dressage, natural horsemanship, business management, veterinary, bits and bitting, horsemanship and equitation, etc etc etc, plus my equine sports science degree study texts.
