Seventh EditionP. McDonald R. A. Edwards J. F. D. GreenhalghC. A. Morgan L. A. Sinclair R. G. WilkinsonAnimal Nutrition is a core text for undergraduates in Animal Science, Veterinary Science, Agriculture,Biology and Biochemistry studying this subject. It also provides a standard reference text for agriculturaladvisers, animal nutritionists and manufacturers of animal feeds.The latest edition of this classic text continues to provide a clear and comprehensive introduction to thescience and practice of animal nutrition. The text is supported by key experimental evidence throughout.Quantitative aspects of the subject are clearly explained and illustrated by worked examples. Chaptersthat deal with the calculation of requirements include problems and solutions to aid student learning. Otherchapters include essay-type questions that students can use as a guide to revision.The new edition of Animal Nutrition has been completely updated and has been reorganised topresent the subject in six sections:the components of foods – carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, vitamins and minerals the digestion and metabolism of nutrients – how animals obtain and utilise nutrients from foods quantifying the nutrients supplied by foods – digestibility, energy and protein values the nutrient requirements of animals – maintenance and production a description of the foods commonly given to animals – their nutrient content and factorsaffecting their use the contribution of animal products to human nutrition – including effects on health and theenvironmentThe Appendix provides comprehensive tables on the composition of foods and the latest feedingstandards for dairy and beef cattle, sheep, pigs and poultry, and horses.P McDonald was formerly Head of the Department of Agricultural Biochemistry at the Edinburgh Schoolof Agriculture.

Preface to the seventh editionThe science of animal nutrition continues to advance and this has necessitated, tovarying degrees, the updating of most chapters. In particular the new developmentsin dairy cow nutrition in the Feed into Milk System and the new nutrient requirements of pigs proposed by the British Society of Animal Science have been incorporated in the middle chapters and the Appendix tables. In addition newinformation, published in recent reviews of nutrient requirements by the NationalResearch Council of the United States, and the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation of Australia has been included.The emphasis of research has shifted during the lifetime of the seven editions ofthis book from mainly outcomes and the effects of nutrition on the whole animal inthe earlier editions to mechanisms, both at a tissue and organ level and increasinglyat a molecular level.The authors are mindful of the need to extend the text in this direction and have included reference to developments in this area.For this edition Alun Edwards decided he would step down and we wish him well.The two remaining authors felt that, in view of the extent of revision required to incorporate the new information, new authors would be required to replace Peter McDonaldand Alun Edwards. Therefore, Liam Sinclair and Robert Wilkinson, Professor ofAnimal Science and Principal Lecturer in Ruminant Nutrition, respectively, of HarperAdams University College were invited to join the team. These new authors contribute a broad knowledge of animal nutrition and will ensure that the book can goto further editions.In this edition we have attempted to address comments and suggestions made byreviewers in order to improve the book. The subject matter is constantly changingand the authors welcome comments and feedback from readers so that the book canremain relevant and useful.Reviewing the book involved many discussions with colleagues and the authorsare grateful for their constructive comments, suggestions and support.C A Morgan, J F D Greenhalgh, L A Sinclair and R G WilkinsonAugust 2010xi
