From the cover: “This book provides the most up-to-date information that is available about the principles of feeding farm live stock. It will be of value as a standard reference book not only to research workers but to advisers and students.
After the Second World War the need for increased production of animal products, the development of agricultural chemistry and the growth of the feeding stuffs industry led to greater use of balanced rations for live stock. The proper balancing of these rations calls for a sound basis on which to’ evaluate and state the nutritional requirements of live stock, but most of the existing standards are based on research carried out half a century ago.
The principles of feeding farm live stock have lately been under review, and newer ideas have been put forward by research workers in different countries. Farmer & Stock-Breeder recently got the advisers, national and commercial, to talk over these matters with research workers and see whether any restatement of principles might be helpful to all concerned. The conference called for this purpose produced not only the many valuable papers in this book but the considerable amount of constructive discussion and suggestions recorded here.”
