In this subject the study of ruminant nutrition is extended, particularly applied nutrition, with the review and analysis of rations and the management of major nutritional disorders. The nutritional requirements of non-ruminant animals including companion animal species, performance animals and animals of intensive production are investigated as well as discussion of nutritional deficiencies, imbalances and potential toxicities that may occur in these species. The relationships between animal nutrition, health, and production are examined. Feed contaminants including potentially toxic plants, plant secondary metabolites, mycotoxins and other environmental contaminants are also investigated.
