This collection of papers, presented at the 34th University of Nottingham Feed Manufacturers Conference, both summarise the current position and provide pointers to major innovations for the future. The first chapters are very forward-looking. They consider how the animal feed industry is likely to develop in the future, animal genetics today that set targets for nutritionists of tomorrow, marketing opportunities provided by quality assurance schemes and new developments in legislation. Species-specific chapters also present innovative ideas for animal nutrition in the future.
