This book, which is essentially an abridgement of Applied Animal Nutrition, has been prepared for use as a guideline for students, researchers, extension workers and policy makers in the field of veterinary and animal husbandry. However, it would be useful for the progressive farmers engaged in livestock production. The need for such book covering modern developments and strategic feeding for sustainable livestock production pertaining to Indian conditions is being felt.
Keeping this in view, only such chapters were chosen about which the authentic information is scattered and not available at one place. It covers the whole range topics related to strategic feeding of livestock. These include special features of ruminants; feed and fodder resources; feed requirement; strategies of fodder production and conservation; advances in feeding of dairy bovine, small ruminants and camels; use of top feeds; agro-industrial byproducts and herbal feeds; improvement of low quality roughages; bypass nutrient technology for sustainable milk production; modern approaches of feed evaluation; role of minor nutrients in production and reproduction; anti nutritive factors in feedstuffs and extension methodology for dissemination of feeding practices.
