This book is a combination of a textbook and a CD-ROM, which makes it a very practical book for learners. The CD-ROM allows you to calculate rations for several animal species, comparable to how this in done in the industry today.
Besides ration formulation, this book also includes up-to-date information on animal nutrition, like dietary energy, water requirements, et cetera. The following animal species are covered in detail: four ruminants, swine, chickens, rabbits, horses, dogs, cats, trout and catfish. Also feed milling technology is covered in this book.
The website of the publisher regularly provides updates on the rations.
The author David Tisch has experience in both the feed milling industry and in education. He teaches courses on animal anatomy, physiology, nutrition and parasitology, as well as courses on technical subjects such as feed milling and information technology.
