Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Poultry meat and eggs can meet the demands of protein needs for the growing human population, as one of the cheapest animal protein sources. With the rising trend in the consumption of poultry products, it is necessary to sustainably produce poultry products without causing environmental damage and maintaining profitability. For sustainable poultry production, there is a need to find alternatives to costly vegetable protein sources such as soybean meal, or increase the efficiency of production by using feed additives or utilization of agro-industrial byproducts for nutrient recycling. Microalgae and insect proteins can serve as alternatives to soybean meal. Studies on how nutrients from these alternative protein sources can be efficiently utilized to meet physiological demands are required. The focus of this Special Issue is to improve our current understanding of the nutritional physiology of alternate protein sources, feed additives and agro-byproducts for efficient nutrient utilization and recycling for sustainable poultry production.

Considering the success of our previous Special Issue, we are pleased to launch “Sustainable Poultry Production: Physiology and Nutrition (Second Edition)”. We welcome the submission of research articles and literature reviews.
