Summary: Recent Advances in Animal Nutrition-1984 documents the proceedings of the Eighteenth Annual Nutrition Conference for Feed Manufacturers. It covers a wide range of topics pertaining to the nutrition of farm livestock. The volume is organized into four parts. Part I on poultry nutrition contains papers relating to carcass quality in broilers. These deal with the influence of diet and genotype, and various aspects of meat quality. Part II on pig nutrition includes studies on the nutrition of early weaned pigs; differences in the recommendations of the Agricultural Research Council (UK) and the N.
