Over the last few decades the prevalence of studies about probiotics strains has dramatically grown in most regions of the world. The use of probiotics strains in animals production may reduce several problems caused by antibiotics therapy, growth promoter and problems from inadequate management. Probiotics are specific strains of microorganisms, which when served to human or animals in proper amount, have a beneficial effect, improving health or reducing risk of get sick. This book provides the maximum of information for all that need them trying with this to help many people at worldwide....
Recently, the credit supply from the formal credit sector to the rural area has increased considerably. However, the credit supply to agriculture is still far from the actual credit need and mismatching with the economic and social contribution of agriculture sector to the rural area. Using data from the household survey in Hai Duong, finding of this paper shows that the credit supply from the formal sector did not meet the credit need of animal production households.
Book "Milk Production - An Up-to-Date Overview of Animal Nutrition, Management and Health" is organized into three main sections, and is concerned with the animal nutrition, animal management and, breeding and animal health. This book permits the reader's exposure to the expert's experience and scientific style of interpreting and integrating available data into his own views.
All animals digest their food, carry on gas exchange, excrete waste, circulate nutrient and waste products to and from the cells, coordinate their movements, protect themselves, and reproduce and disperse the species. The more complex animals have organ systems to carry out these functions; in simple animals, these functions sometimes are carried out by specialized tissues.
The Science of Animal Agriculture is directed toward teaching the
basic science concepts involved in the production of agricultural
animals. This newly revised edition contains the latest up-to-date
information regarding the scientifi c aspect of the agricultural
industry. All facets of modern agriculture are based on science.
From the most rudimentary cultural practices to the most complicated
biotechnology techniques, scientifi c research has produced
the phenomenon known as American agriculture....
The development of goat production system in Vietnam has been boosted by the government of Vietnam through the establishment and support for research centers goats and rabbits Shanxi in the north of Vietnam. The initiatives developed at this center through both national and international programs R & D has been successfully implemented local farms in the north, and both national and government province needs to promote similar projects in central and southern Vietnam. While many technologies, expertise and funds to apply to the small farmers are limited....

Book "Milk Production - Advanced Genetic Traits, Cellular Mechanism, Animal Nutrition and Management" is made for the publication of continuation of advances in the knowledge involving milk production. This book is divided into two main sections and is devoted to more specific consideration of areas with aspects of genetics factors and the molecular and cellular mechanisms, animal management, nutrition and husbandry.
A processing department is an organizational unit where work is performed on a prod-
uct and where materials, labor, or overhead costs are added to the product. For example, a
Nalley’s potato chip factory might have three processing departments—one for preparing
potatoes, one for cooking, and one for inspecting and packaging. A brick factory might
have two processing departments—one for mixing and molding clay into brick form and
one for firing the molded brick. Some products and services may go through a number of
processing departments, while others may...
It is said that farms having land to grow crops and forage (PK-3 and PK-10R) were relatively most
competitive. The PK-10R farm is said to be most viable farm size, and has the potential of challenging
competitors in export markets6. Such farms make effective use of technological advances in breeding
practices, e.g., artificial insemination, to improve their herd quality. Some of them have also installed their
own pasteurization or processing equipment. However, there are only 23% of farmers who fall in the
PK-10R category, whereas 70% of the farmers have less than four animals.

An additional element in the prevention of introduction and spread of disease is the use of
vaccination. The manual does not cover this aspect but the importance of an appropriate
vaccination strategy is acknowledged, and vaccination as a possible risk management measure
should form part of the overall biosecurity assessment and strategy.
The purpose of the manual is to establish a minimum set of biosecurity guidelines, applicable to
all poultry producers (including ratites) from hatcheries to the point of delivery at the processor.
Measurement of efficiency started with Farrell (1957) who, following Debreu (1951)
and Koopmas (1951), proposed a division of efficiency into two components: technical
efficiency, which represents a firm’s ability to produce a maximum level of output from
a given level of inputs, and allocative efficiency, which is the ability of a firm to use
inputs in optimal proportions, given their respective prices and available technology.
The combination of these two measures yields the level of economic efficiency.
270 households surveyed and interviewed. After analyzing the survey data, 30
households in Hai Thuong Commune, Phu Hai, Hai Lang district has been selected
involved in the project. Each family chose a range from 3 to 15 Mong Cai sows.
All households selected for breeding pigs, learning and sharing technical knowledge in the pig
Th i s book wi 11 be of great interest to anyone
concerned with animal feeds and feeding programs whether
one is studying bovine, porcine, equine, avian or lower
vertebrate (fish and eel) nutrition. This information
is critical to the success of an animal feeding program.
Somet imes the di fference between a successful and a
failing program can be traced to mineral deficiencies
which cause either abnormal growth, reduced milk
production, interrupted fertility and breeding,
compromised immune system integrity and/or decrement in
normal hemoglobin concentration.
When a new veterinary medicinal product is
launched into widespread use, adverse drug reactions
may become apparent. These may be seen in
the treated animal patients, in exposed users or as
adverse effects on the environment. Additionally,
they may manifest as excess residues of the drug
in food of animal origin. As a consequence, legislation
and regulatory approaches have developed
across the globe to address these issues and to
ensure that the continued safety of these products
can be monitored and, where necessary,
that regulatory actions can be pursued to assuage

The final examination for Ruminant Animals will be 3 hours duration and has a
value of 50% of the total course grade. The examination will consists of questions,
which will reflect the type of self-testing, practice exercise and tutor marked
problems you have previously encountered. All areas of the course will be assessed.
Use the time between finishing the last unit and sitting for the examination to revise
the entire course. You might find it useful to review your self-test, tutor marked
assignments and comments on them before the examination.
