About this book

Developments in poultry science continue at an ever-increasing rate. In parallel, poultry production has, from comparatively humble beginnings of little more than 50 years ago, emerged to become one of the World's major livestock enterprises with consumption of poultry meat and eggs increasing in virtually every country. Accordingly, it is crucial that those involved in all aspects of the industry are kept informed of relevant issues. This volume brings together, in one volume, all those recent papers which have considered various aspects of poultry science and production which were presented at the annual University of Nottingham Feed Manufacturers' Conferences.
