Enzymes in farm animal nutrition.

Book cover for Enzymes in farm animal nutrition.

Description

The book is a compilation of different articles that focuses on the application of different enzymes on the livestock nutrition to improve feed formulation, production cost, feed efficiency and animal performance. Topics discussed are introduction on the current market and expected developments in enzyme industry; xylanases and cellulases as feed additives; mannanase, α-galactosidase and pectinase enzymes; starch- and protein-degrading enzymes: biochemistry, enzymology and characteristics relevant to animal feed use; phytases: biochemistry, enzymology and characteristics relevant to animal feed use; effect of digestive tract conditions, feed processing and ingredients on response to non-starch polysaccharide enzymes; phytate and phytase enzymes; developments in enzyme usage in ruminants; other enzyme applications relevant to the animal feed industry; thermostability of feed enzymes and their practical application in the feed mill; analysis of enzymes, principles and problems: developments in enzyme analysis; holo analysis of the efficacy of exogenous enzyme performance in farm animal nutrition; and the future of feed enzymes as a bright hope or regulatory minefield. This book is intended for animal nutritionists, veterinarians, feed manufacturers, animal scientist, livestock farmers and students of related sciences.
