Topical Collection in Animals: Poultry Nutrition and Metabolism
Livestock management has been changing in the last several decades, and the main change is related to the feed requirements for optimum animal performance. An increased understanding of nutrition, of the impact of the environment on animal performance, and even the differences between nutritionists, have caused feed manufacturers to revise their manufacturing procedures. Feed cost is the major issue in farm animal production, and without doubt, efforts are imperative to refine feed processing techniques to reduce feed costs and to enhance feed value for target animals.
The scope of the present Special Issue is to publish high-quality papers concerning animal feed quality and technology, and to deeply investigate the correlations between new feed strategies and farm animal production and health. Therefore, we invite you to submit, in this Special Issue, your recent findings, in the form of original research, communications or reviews, on feed science and technology regarding, but not limited to: the effect of feed technologies on animal production quality; the use of functional feed additives to improve animal health and immune status; feed science and microbiota; nutraceuticals; alternative feed by-products for livestock species; feed technology and environmental impact; and new feed technology.Prof. Vito Laudadio
