The first section of this book explores the principles of nitrogen metabolism in ruminants, indicates relatively simple ways in which deficiencies of nitrogen can be diagnosed, and explores practical ways to overcome such deficiencies. The second section presents information from animal production scientists in tropical and subtropical countries on animal production systems, animal nutrition and the use of nitrogenous supplements.
