This book describes the cellular and molecular mechanisms that control farm animal growth, including development and body composition. The emphasis is on circulating hormones, local growth factors and gene transcription factors which regulate growth and differentiation of skeletal muscle, bone and adipose tissue. Overall, this book will be an important resource for students that have a limited background in cell, molecular and developmental biology and the effect of endocrine and growth factors on the growth process.
