    With 42 chapters authored by leading international experts, Swine Nutrition: Second Edition is a comprehensive reference that covers all aspects of the nutrition of pigs. Content includes characteristics of swine and the swine industry with emphasis on the gastrointestinal tract; various classes of nutrients, how these nutrients are metabolized by swine, and the factors affecting their utilization; the practical aspects of swine nutrition from birth through gestation, lactation in sows, and the feeding of adult boars; and nutritional aspects of the various feedstuffs commonly fed to swine. Rounding the book is coverage of various techniques used in swine nutrition research.
