The fourth edition of this important book covers the advances in livestock mineral nutrition, updated with more illustrations and additional material on the interrelationships between livestock and man. Recent developments are discussed, such as the real value of increasing nutritive value of feed by the use of additives, enhancing the mineral availability of organic supplements in trace elements, the concept of the `mineral footprint' of livestock, and potential problems caused by methods of mineral feeding aiming to lower environmental pollution, such as health implications for humans.
