Animal Farming 2018: The Story Behind The Livestock Industry
  Colin T. Whittemore/ 9789086863198/ Price:EUR 40.00
Book Cover 'Animal farming' is a readable, thought-provoking, honest, and unstuffy account of what really happens on Europe's and Britain's animal farms, and how animal farming came to be that way. Stories behind modern farming practices are revealed and concerns are raised over how our farms will look in the future. Fascinating insights and unpalatable questions are presented into the ways that animals are - often wrongly - fed, bred, housed and managed. Learning comes from failures, so the book is more about failures than successes. The author combines well researched facts with well found experience. He commends and condemns in equal measure; often in unexpected ways. A broad range of subjects is covered in the book. What domestication now means for farm animals. How selective breeding has changed them for better and worse. The mixed blessings of government support and subsidisation. The story of abuse of animals' rights and welfare is dealt with in detail, as are ideas of respect and compassion, and the inadequate ways in which animals are fed. The author describes a broken marketing system for livestock products, and also considers organic farming. Lastly, in the present environment of agricultural upheaval in Europe, how can science and technology take animal farming forward? What are the chances of the wrongs being righted - what will tomorrow's farmed animals be for?
INRA feeding system for ruminants 2018
  INRA/ 9789086862924/ Price:EUR 79.00
Book Cover The INRA Feeding System for Ruminants has been renewed to better address emerging challenges for animal nutrition: prevision of productive responses, product quality, animal health and emissions to the environment, in a larger extent of breeding contexts. The new system is mainly built from meta-analyses of large data bases, and modelling. The dietary supply model accounts for digestive interactions and flows of individual nutrients, so that feed values depend on the final ration. Animal requirements account for variability in metabolic efficiency. Various productive and non-productive animal responses to diets are quantified. This book presents the whole system for dairy and meat, large and small ruminant production, including specificities for tropical and Mediterranean areas. The first two sections present biological concepts and equations (with their field of application and statistical accuracy) used to predict intake (including at grazing) and nutrient supply (Section 1), animalˇ¦s requirements and multiple responses to diets (Section 2). They apply to net energy, metabolisable protein and amino acids, water, minerals and vitamins. Section 3 presents the use of concepts and equations in rationing with two purposes: (1) diet calculation for a given performance objective; and (2) prediction of the multiple responses of animal to diet changes. Section 4 displays the tables of feed values, and their prevision. All the equations and concepts are embedded in the fifth version of INRAtionR software for practical use.

Selenium In Poultry Nutrition And Health
  Peter F. Surai/ 9789086863174/ Price:EUR 120.00
Book Cover Selenium (Se) is an essential dietary trace element participating in the regulation of various physiological functions in humans, farm animals and poultry through its incorporation into a range of selenoproteins. Low Se content in main feed ingredients is a common problem worldwide and dietary Se supplementation is a current practise in poultry and farm animal nutrition. Recent research clearly proved that sodium selenite, used for the last 40 years as a feed supplement, is not an optimal form of Se. However, use of organic selenium in animal/poultry diets can help meeting Se requirement and maintain high immunocompetence, productive and reproductive performance. The goal of this book is to provide up to date information about the roles of Se in poultry nutrition and health. A special emphasis is given to the role of selenium as an essential part of the integrated antioxidant system. Se in feed and organic Se are characterised in detail with emphasis to selenomethionine as a storage form of Se in the body. Also specific Se-deficiency related diseases in poultry are described and the importance of Se in growth, development, immunity and reproduction is demonstrated. A link between poultry industry and human health via production of Se-eggs and Se-enriched meat is shown. This book will be of practical importance to poultry producers, to nutritionists and vets as well as for avian/animal scientists, students of agricultural colleges and universities. It will also be of interest for researchers in areas related to ecology, environmental sciences, evolutionary biology, etc.

SE06-462 Livestock Production. (With DVD)
  / 9781680955248/ Price:US$ 79.95
Book Cover Livestock are domesticated animals raised in an agricultural setting to produce commodities such as food, ber, and labor. The term is often used to refer solely to those raised for food, and sometimes only farmed ruminants, such as cattle and goats. Animal husbandry practices have varied widely across cultures and time periods. Originally, livestock were not con ned by fences or enclosures, but these practices have largely shifted to intensive animal farming, sometimes referred to as factory farming. These practices increase yield of the various commercial outputs, but have led to increased concerns about animal welfare and environmental impact. Livestock production continues to play a major economic and cultural role in numerous rural communities.
SE06-462 Integrated Cattle Nutrition.
  / 9781680955378/ Price:US$ 64.95
Book Cover The proper nutrition of cattle is a key component of a successful production system. Feed usually accounts for the single largest input cost associated with cattle. Feeding diets with lowered protein content reduces nitrogen input, improves nitrogen utilization e ciency, and reduces nitrogen losses from manure. Reducing dietary protein also bene ts the producer by reducing feed cost and improving overall farm pro tability. These interventions, however, have to be balanced with the risk of loss in milk production. If the true animal requirements for metabolizable protein are not met, long-term production cannot be sustained. Certain nutrients are required by beef cattle in the daily ration, whereas others can be stored in the body. When body stores of a nutrient are high, e.g., vitamin A, dietary supplementation is unnecessary until such stores are depleted. However, it may be di cult to determine when body stores have been depleted until advanced signs of de ciency start to appear. Hence, a knowledge of the basic digestive system of cattle and the role of various nutrients is important. Combined with accurate feed analysis, it allows the formulation of balanced rations which will meet production goals in an economic manner. It also enhances the management of the feeding program by providing the background information necessary to prevent or resolve problem situations.
SE06-462 Reproduction in Cattle.
  / 9781680955385/ Price:US$ 64.95
Book Cover Getting dairy cattle rebred in a timely fashion is critical for dairy farm pro tability. To accomplish this objective,information is essential for arti cial insemination in dairy cattle, improving the detection of heat cycles, methods of pregnancy diagnosis in dairy cattle, and dairy cow reproductive management. The ability of a cow to successfully mate, conceive, give birth to and raise a healthy calf each year is essential to economical beef production. A good understanding of anatomy and physiology of both the male and female is helpful in successfully managing reproduction. Causes for failures in reproduction must be identi ed and overcome. These techniques in beef production provide many options to help modern beef producers accomplish their management goals.
SE06-462 Reproduction in Domestic Animals.
  / 9781680955392/ Price:US$ 64.95
Book Cover Animal species that are under human control are considered Domesticated. Reproduction is necessary for the survival of any species. The role of reproduction is to provide for the continued existence of a species; it is the process by which living organisms duplicate themselves. Animals compete with other individuals in the environment to maintain themselves for a period of time su cient to enable them to produce tissue nonessential to their own survival, but indispensable to the maintenance of the species. The additional tissue, reproductive tissue, usually becomes separated from the individual to form a new, independent organism. Through this improved understanding, the development of reproductive technologies like arti cial insemination, embryo transfer and sexing semen became possible. By studying developmental biology, a sub- eld of reproductive biology, we now better understand crucial developmental periods during gestation and can make appropriate adjustments in how we manage and feed animals.
SE06-462 Small Scale Broiler Production.
  / 9781680955415/ Price:US$ 64.95
Book Cover Family poultry is de ned as small-scale poultry keeping by households using family labor and, wherever possible, locally available feed resources. The poultry may range freely in the household compound and nd much of their own food, getting supplementary amounts from the householder. For smallholder farmers, family poultry represents one of the few opportunities for saving, investment and security against risk. Poultry keeping uses family labour, and women (who often own as well as look after the family ock) are major bene ciaries. Women often have an important role in the development of family poultry production. Poultry management usually refers to the husbandry practices or production techniques that help to maximize the e ciency of production. Sound management practices are very essential to optimize production. Scienti c poultry management aims at maximizing returns with minimum investment.
SE06-462 Reproduction in Farm Animals.
  / 9781680955422/ Price:US$ 64.95
Book Cover Animal husbandry practices have varied widely across cultures and time periods. These practices increase yield of the various commercial outputs, but have led to increased concerns about animal welfare and environmental impact. Half a century ago, family farms were prevalent. Animals grazed on pasture, breathing fresh air, and feeling sunshine on their backs. During inclement weather, they were sheltered in straw-bedded barns. In contrast, the rearing of farm animals today is dominated by industrialized facilities that maximize pro ts by treating animals not as sentient creatures, but as production units. Raised by the thousands at a single site, animals are con ned in such tight quarters that they can scarcely move, let alone behave normally. Such production creates what appear to be "cheap" meat, eggs, and dairy products. But what at the cash register seems inexpensive in fact costs dearly to farm animals, the environment, rural and traditional farming, human health, and food quality and safety. A good understanding of anatomy and physiology of both the male and female is helpful in successfully managing reproduction. The techniques in animal production provide many options to help modern farmers accomplish their management goals.
SE06-462 Poultry Science.
  / 9781680955477/ Price:US$ 64.95

SE06-460 Animal Husbandry in the Tropics.
  Piestun, Dan/ 9781680958607/ Price:US$ 170.00
Book Cover Animal husbandry, the practice of raising animals for food, requires not only the ability to breed, feed, and care for livestock but also an underlying scientific knowledge that informs this practice. The present level of advancement of science disciplines like genomics, animal neuroscience, and animal behavioral science is affecting, sometimes upending, previous practices and understanding. At the same time, evolving climate conditions challenge domestic animal production with more extreme atmospheric events, which in turn question previous proven methods. More specifically, animals in the tropics and beyond face danger from serious flooding, extreme heat waves that compromise immune systems, new or mutant infectious pathogens, and pests. Evolution may hold the key for adaptation in the long term, but farmers had better find new ways to drive breeding and maintain animal welfare for continued success.

SE06-356 Gut Efficiency: The Key Ingredient in Pig and Poultry Production.
  Taylor-Pickard, J. A./ 9789086860609/ Price:EUR 97.00
Globally, the face of pig and poultry production is changing. The global emphasis on ethanol production has diverted significant proportions of grain away from animal production, thus increasing the cost of feed. This has forced the pig and poultry industries to scrutinise their production methods investigating alternative feed ingredients together with methods of improving productivity and efficiency in order to survive. This edited collection of papers is taken from a series of seminars that brought together some of the world's leading authorities in the field of pig and poultry nutrition and production.

SE06-334 Farm Management and Extension Needs in Central and Eastern European Countries under the EU Milk Quota.
  Kuipers, Abele/ 9789076998923/ Price:EUR 50.00
The introduction of a quota system has a large impact on the development of the agricultural sector, the agro-business and individual farms. In April 2004 the Central and Eastern European (CEE) Countries entering the EU had to implement a quota system for milk. It requires institution building, setting up administrative procedures, choices of the system, choice of priority groups, handling of butterfat reference, dealing with a national reserve, control aspects, quota transfer, farm management aspects and communication to farmers. All early attention at national levels has been given to the administrative aspects of milk quota systems. Communication to farmers about the system and the effects on farm management is often neglected. This publication hopes to fill this gap and wants to stimulate attention on farm management and extension efforts. It presents an overview of papers from ˇ§oldˇ¨ countries and country reports from new EU countries. They all contain information about expected structural changes due to the quota system, effects on farm management, extension needs in this area and challenges in years ahead. Impressions from 7 other CEE non EU countries are also included.

SE06-332 Mastitis in Dairy Production: Current Knowledge and Future Solutions.
  Hogeveen, H./ 9789076998701/ Price:EUR 120.00
Worldwide, mastitis is still one of the most important diseases in the dairy sector. Being a multifactorial disease, caused by multiple pathogens, control remains a difficult issue. Mastitis not only affects the health of milk-producing animals, having consequences for the profitability of dairy farms, it also affects the animal welfare. Moreover, mastitis negatively influences the milk quality having consequences for the dairy processing industry. In other words: mastitis affects a large part of the dairy production chain. Due to ongoing scientific effort, insight in mastitis in the context of increasingly complex farming systems, is improving. This insight leads to better methods to control mastitis, either by prevention or by adequate measures (e.g. therapy) when a cow (or goat or sheep) gets mastitis. This book reflects the current knowledge from all over the world on mastitis as it was presented during the 4th IDF International Mastitis Conference, held in June 2005 in Maastricht, the Netherlands. The papers of the 115 oral presentations and the 13 keynote presentations are reflecting not only the current knowledge of mastitis control but are also giving ideas for future solutions for control measures.
SE06-332 Pastoral Systems in Marginal Environments.
  Milne, J. A./ 9789076998749/ Price:EUR 46.00
The aim of the book is to take a holistic view of pastoral systems by bringing together papers written by specialists in plant and animal ecology with an interest in the application of their research with papers taking an economic and social perspective. The focus is on marginal environments where the issues are in greatest relief with the papers tackling key issues in semi-arid and disadvantaged temperate areas. The key issues relate to identifying the biological constraints of these pastoral systems, understanding soil/plant/animal relationships, exploring biodiversity, landscape and social issues in multi-functional systems and providing solutions to constraints through a number of case studies. By comparing and contrasting these two environments, the book will be taking a completely new approach to understanding how pastoral systems function and how they will evolve in the future

SE06-327 Animal Production and Natural Resources Utilization in the Mediterranean Mountain Areas.
  Georgoudis, A./ 9789076998565/ Price:EUR 87.00
Mediterranean inhabitants depend on natural resources for their livelihoods. Livestock production and forestry are key sources of income yet are carried out under harsh conditions such as limited land resources, marginal agricultural conditions, isolation, and scant equipment and infrastructure. Livestock is of particular importance in mountain production systems as they convert plant biomass into useful products for humans such as milk, meat and draught power. These products are key to the regions' sustainability. The main topics discussed in this book are: Human geography of Mediterranean mountain territories. Livestock production and natural resources. Improving the efficiency of livestock systems in Mediterranean mountain areas. Applications of new technologies for environmentally sound management of livestock and natural resources. Livestock role in rural development and in safeguarding natural resources.
SE06-327 Knowledge Transfer in Cattle Husbandry: New Management Practices, Attitudes and Adaptation.
  Kuipers, Abele/ 9789076998800/ Price:EUR 56.00
The organizational and personal dimensions are too often neglected as critical factors to success. Organizational aspects deserve credit, because the results of research must often be implemented in a complex chain of producer and consumer oriented organisations. Personal aspects such as attitudes and views towards the future significantly determine the chance of adopting innovations. In this book these dimensions also receive some attention. Some more theoretical papers are followed by practical examples of implementations in the field and by descriptions of extension networks and services. A large variety of papers is presented: from the power of the researcher and consultant through the power of data banks to the power of the client and producer in the dissemination process; thus from input driven to demand driven.

  Meijering, A./ 9789076998381/ Price:EUR 88.00
From 2000 to now, the level of scientific knowledge on various aspects and consequences of automatic milking has increased largely as well because of research efforts all over the world. A significant share of these efforts has been made within the framework of a EU-granted project on the implications of the introduction of automatic milking on dairy farms. Some seven research institutes and six industrial companies from six countries joined their expertise and experience in order to facilitate a widespread adoption of automatic milking without undesirable side effects. This book reflects the knowledge on automatic milking generated all over the world in the last few years. Its contents can therefore be regarded as the present state of knowledge in the field of automatic milking, for a better understanding
SE06-327 Tables of Composition and Nutritional Value of Feed Materials: Pigs, Poultry, Cattle, Sheep, Goats, Rabbits, Horses and Fish.
  Sauvant, D./ 9789076998411/ Price:EUR 64.00
This book is the result of collaborative work between INRA and the Association Francaise de Zootechnie (AFZ). The tables in this book present the chemical composition and nutritional values of the feed materials fed to the main farm species. The feed materials included in this publication are used both in the formulation of compound feeds and as straight feedstuffs (concentrates and by-products). The values of chemical composition were mainly obtained using field data collected by AFZ from laboratories specialising in animal feeding (the data base includes over one million values). The nutritional values result principally from experimental work performed by INRA and its partners. The data used take into account the evolution in feed materials and nutritional concepts. Important characteristics have been introduced, namely net energy for pigs (growing pigs and sows), amino acid digestibility, mineral availability and starch degradability for ruminants. In the present context of animal feeding and the new challenges that it faces (product quality and safety, animal health and welfare, environmental issues), this publication provides a reliable scientific reference document for feed manufacturers, veterinarians, extension officers, farmers, lecturers and students.
