About this book

The central role of nutrition in the reproduction of farm animals has long been recognised. In the last two decades, there have been considerable advances in our knowledge of sow and boar nutrition which has allowed the development of effective feeding strategies. Such progress will continue in order to meet the demands of ever-increasing product targets. This internationally acclaimed book aims to provide information to allow the development of appropriate feeding strategies. In addition to basic scientific knowledge, practical guidelines and indices of reproduction are given, commensurate with good performance, health and welfare. This comprehensive work will be an invaluable source of reference for students, research scientists, veterinarians, nutritionists and all those engaged in practical pig production.
