Special Issue Information
The externalization of animals’ genetic potential is determined by a number of external factors, of which feeding plays a major role. Animals’ nourishment is one of the most important levers to ensure the efficiency of animal production, due to both the high share of feed costs in the total cost of products and the influence this has on the growth, reproduction and health of animals as well as the quality of products obtained from these. This field is one of the most dynamic in the field of husbandry sciences, due to the takeover and permanent use of numerous results obtained from research on energy metabolism and nutrients, related to the composition of feed and its influence on animal products. This is also due to the great advances in genetics, which create new types of animals, with an increasing productive potential, but also with different food requirements.
This Special Issue is dedicated to interdisciplinary studies on animal nutrition, physiology, chemistry, biochemistry, genetics, reproduction and breeding technologies. The articles will cover a wide range of topics related to feed quality, the influence of food on production level, the quality of production and also on animals’ health.
All types of articles will be accepted—original research, opinions and reviews.
Prof. Dr. Daniel Simeanu
