It is accepted that animal nutrition affects the quality of animal products. Accordingly, the range of animal feeding strategies, dietary ingredients and feed additives has increased to match consumer and societal demands in relation to food safety, nutritional quality and human health.
In this Special Issue, we invite authors to submit original research and review articles on exploring animal nutritional strategies that have a potential benefit on product quality (e.g., milk and/or cheese, meat, eggs, honey), including, not only the main livestock species (swine, cattle, sheep, poultry) managed worldwide, but also some minor ones (e.g. buffaloes, bees, cervids).
Articles may include, but are not limited to, the impact of the following topics:
- Nutrient requirements to assure product quality
- Innovative feeding strategies and product quality
- Dietary feed ingredients and product quality
- Roughage sources and product quality
- Feed additives and product quality
- Egg quality as affected by animal diet
- Milk and/or cheese quality as affected by animal diet
- Meat and meat products (e.g., ham, sausages) quality as affected by animal diet
