Development of Nutrient Requirements
Department of Animal and Food Science
It is important to establish nutrient requirements of farm animals. This proposal will allow us to establish a working committee to begin the process of developing procedures to establish nutrient requirements.
2009 Project Description
Activity included meeting with contemporaries in the animal nutrition area to investigate ways of developing a system for publishing updated nutrient requirements of livestock and poultry more frequently than is currently being done.
Contacts were made at multi-state meetings, regional and national animal science meetings, and feed industry conferences. Various options were discussed which led to the submission of a National Research Support Project Proposal to the Experiment Station Directors.
