Animal Feed Technology

S S Kundu (Editor) Sultan Singh (Author) S K Mahanta (Author) P S Pathak (Author)

Livestock raising is undergoing a phenomenal change during last few years. Its economic importance has further increased and likely to zoom in coming years. The population growth, urbanization, change in dietary preferences and increased income, have driven the demand for foods of animal origin. Feed and fodder supply still remains the most critical impediment in the growth of livestock industry in the country. Overall deficiency in feed supply remains around 50%. The current production of compound feed from the feed manufacturing sector is only to the tune of 10 million tones per year against a conservative demand of 40 million tones. In present scenario it appears imperative to give a immediate fillip to the feed production. The editors in the present book have contemplated the available information contributed by learned experts in their field. The book cover the topics like cereal availability, processing, gelatinization, extrusion technology, codex alimentarius, protection of fats and portents, urea molasses mineral block technology, antrinutri-nutional factors, processing for pig feeding liquid feed handing storage losses, mineral mixture preparation, agro-industrial by products, feed microscopy, probiotics, herbal feed additives etc. It is expected that the book will be equally useful to research scientist in engineering, animal nutrition, students and feed manufacturing industries alike.
