|Summary:|| Recent Advances in Animal Nutrition - 1982 focuses on the compositions of animal feeds. The book first discusses the presence of molds and mycotoxins in animal feeds. Controlling mycotoxin exposure, formation and effects of mycotoxins, and microbiology of feeds are described. The text surveys the anti-nutritive factors in animal feeds. Substances depressing digestion or metabolic utilization of proteins; substances reducing the solubility or interfering with the utilization of mineral elements; and substances inactivating or increasing the requirements of vitamins are discussed. The book also.
