Animal Nutrition From Theory to Practice

AAAS Fellow, Professor Philip Hynd, has authored a new book Animal Nutrition, From Theory to Practice.

Nutrition is the key driver of animal health, welfare and production. In agriculture, nutrition is crucial to meet increasing global demands for animal protein and consumer demands for cheaper meat, milk and eggs and higher standards of animal welfare. For companion animals, good nutrition is essential for quality and length of life.

Animal Nutrition  examines the science behind the nutrition and feeding of major domesticated species including sheep, beef cattle, dairy cattle, deer. goats, poultry, camelids, horses, dogs and cats. It includes introductory chapters on digestion an feeding standards, followed by chapters on each animal, containing information on digestive anatomy and physiology, evidence-based nutrition and feeding requirements, and common nutritional and metabolic diseases.

Animal Nutrition is available from CSIRO Publishing (
