This text (a slightly older edition) was the required text for my Feeds and Feeding class. This updated version expanded on some topics compared to previous editions. Contents are broken up into four sections: Intro, Feeds for livestock, Livestock species, & Feeding other domesticated species. Chapters for the intro are as follows: 1)Basis for successful feeding of livestock, 2)The gastrointestinal tract and nutrient utilization, and 3)Nutrients: their metabolism and feeding standards. Part two chapters are: 4)Feedstuffs, 5)High-energy feedstuffs, 6)Supplemental protein sources, 7)Roughages, 8)Mineral & vitamin supplementation, 9)Feed additives, 10)Feed laws and labeling, 11)Feed processing, and 12)Ration formulation. Part three chapters are: 13)Feeding swine, 14)Feeding Poultry, 15)Feeding dairy cows, 16)Feeding dairy calves & replacements, 17)Feeding the beef cow herd, and 18)Feeding growing-finishing beef cattle. The final section chapters are: 19)Feeding horses, 20)Sheep nutrition, 21)Goats & goat nutrition, 22)Feeding and nutrition of companion & zoological species, and 23)Feeding rabbits.

The chapter on companion & zoological species covers dogs, cats, birds, reptiles & amphibians, & touches briefly on zoological diets. The cat & dog sections have adequate coverage, although there definitely could be more coverage. However the reptile & amphibian and bird sections could use some fleshing out... and I am not aware of a good alternative source for this information. The authors could have went into more depth on the zoological portion seeing as most other books don't even touch on it and there is actually a need for zoo animal nutrition guides, instead of just extrapolation from similar species (yes this works for some species-a zebra and a horse can't have that much of different requirements right? But what about carnivores... where are the recommendations for them?). I do understand that it is hard to include information like this because it largely doesn't exist, but if you want to include information in your text on it, go into a bit more depth... are the extrapolations that zoo nutritionists do based on body weight? age? reproductive status? these would be ideal points to cover since this book gets used by a lot of aspiring veterinary/zoo/biological science students. Hopefully in future editions, the authors will try to get experts to help "flesh out" the above discussed sections to fill the need since most of the other nutrition texts don't even cover some of the topics yet.

Overall this book is a great resource and I highly recommend it to livestock producers, dog & cat owners, undergraduate students in animal or biological sciences, and anyone looking for solid information on animal nutrition as the majority of the principles apply to all species. For someone looking for additional nutrition references I also recommend Animal Feeding and Nutrition. Between these two books, most of the small gaps in the information get covered. Both are great references.
  • Tekasa
Great condition. Provides an amazing amount of information regarding nutrients, various data on feedstuffs, and so much more.
  • Aiata
Very nice book it has full of knowledge
  • Kabei
Good information, awful editing. Lots of errors in the calculations especially, which is confusing when you're trying to figure out how they got certain numbers.
  • Saberdragon
Ordered this for a class. The textbook was received within the stated time and in perfect condition. This textbook is written in an easy-to-read way; very simplistic and informative. Will definitely serve as a good reference tool for anyone dealing with animal nutrition. More complex ideas/information is broken down within the text so you can understand quickly what the authors are trying to get across. Includes a lot of tables, graphs, and figures for reference (even for specific species).
  • Silver Globol
Great textbook.
  • Anayajurus
checked several resources and the price is the best deal, what more can you say a book is a book
Helped me better understand the feeding needs of my herd and better formulate rations. This is a basic book. It lacks some of the more unconventional substitutions, but the conversion statistics let me talk over my peers frequently.
