Did you know that if someone else had discovered vitamin K, it would be called vitamin C2 or even vitamin G? Or that sheep and cattle digest fiber with incredible efficiency? How about the fact that a well-known rat poison was named after a university? Or that the celluloid film originally used in Hollywood movies was derived from the plant fiber cellulose? Or that the calories listed on supermarket food labels don’t tell us how much energy we really digest? These and other interesting facts can be found in this absorbing and practical book about livestock nutrition by Woody Lane, PhD.
Written with a no-nonsense approach to information and concepts, the book is an ideal companion to primary textbooks while remaining easy enough to understand and enjoy by anyone interested in farming and livestock. There are chapters on sheep, beef cattle, horses, and even humans.
