About this book

This book contains the proceedings of the 32nd University of Nottingham Feed Manufacturers Conference. A leading authority has written each chapter and presented a review of their subject, often with recent research findings that they may not have published elsewhere. All topics were chosen by the programme committee, which includes representatives from the commercial sector. Of particular concern to the Animal Feed Industry right now is the public perception of food safety and many chapters are related to this theme.
