Nutrition & metabolism

An understanding of livestock nutrition is of paramount importance in feeding the world’s growing population effectively. Within livestock nutrition this includes the need to improve feed conversion efficiency, the potential use of novel feed altetrnatives to traditional feeds and forages, and improving feed to mitigate livestock greenhouse gas emissions.

CABI has a wide range of information products to meet the requirements of animal nutrition researchers, undergraduate and graduate students, and practitioners. We cover the feeding of livestock, fish and shellfish, zoo animals, and companion animals (including horses), nutrient digestion, absorption and metabolism, feed technology and preservation, and the role of diet in the aetiology and treatment of disease.
