The unique organization of this text introduces the student to the nutrients animals consume, and then follows those nutrients through the animals' systems to their utilization or excretion. Since the most efficient and economical use of nutrients is of primary importance in today's livestock production, digestion and the resulting products in the case of ruminants and non ruminants are discussed in the vernacular of feed efficiency. Written for the beginning nutrition student, the text provides a review of nutrient groups and a clear, simple discussion of metabolism in terms of controlling factors, such as vitamins and minerals.
