The Principles & Practice of Feeding Farm Animals
E T Halnan
Hardback 360 pages
First Edition 1940
Very good condition
The names of the authors of this compact book and the school from which it comes, are sufficient guarantee of its soundness. It only remains to indicate its scope.
The scientific principles of nutrition and their application to the feeding of farm livestock are explained in simple terms, and the data required for practical use are clearly set out. While primarily intended for students taking a degree or diploma in agriculture, the inclusion of a variety of well-proved rations and the clear exposition of the principles of good husbandry should also appeal to the practical farmer and widen the purchasing public. The facts and figures incorporated in the text and in the appendixes also render it useful for ready reference in many directions.
The first section of 84 pages deals with theoretical considerations and covers chemical composition of feeding stuffs and animals, the fate of food in the animal, the qualitative or biological values of feeding stuffs, and feeding standards. The second section deals with practical considerations and covers, in succession, the common feeding stuffs of the British Isles, the uses of grassland and its products for livestock, the preparation of feeding stuffs, the general principles underlying the feeding of farm animals, the feeding of rearing cattle, of dairy cows, of fattening cattle, of sheep, of pigs, of horses, and of poultry. There is a final chapter on feeding in war time.
