The aim of this book is to help create new feedstuffs for poultry and farm animals from the agro-industry and to mobilize the neglected waste as a feedstuff to lower the price of animal products such as eggs, white and red meat, milk, etc. Furthermore, this book aims to contribute to the campaign against hunger in the developing world and to reduce the competition between animals and human beings for cereals and pulses. Accordingly the global pollution problem will be reduced. This book will be of great interest to all those involved in the animal feed and poultry industries, in agricultural universities, and in research establishments where animal nutrition is studied and taught.

Editorial Reviews

`The authors are to be commended for identifying an area of both commercial and ecological importance where a synthesis of information was needed and for their industriousness in bringing so much of it together. Also, the book provides a useful entry to the literature, with lists of more than 800 references covering a wide range of subject matter. It should have a valuable role as a source of information and ideas for research and development workers, practical nutritionists, for those engaged in education, extension and consultancy and for interested students.'
