Feeds, Feeding, and Animal Nutrition is the first text of its kind to finally pair ration formulation software with the text to create a comprehensive learning solution. Both products are created by the same author allowing for a streamlined presentation and experience. The animal feeding and nutrition industries are as computerized as any industry in the world, but the challenge has been to find software that can effectively accompany a text and give the student everything they need to succeed. This is a deficiency that has now been addressed. The ration formulation software has the same functionality as that used in the industry today and covers each species discussed in the text. Along with the software, the text includes the most current information on animal feeding and nutrition available, including full species coverage such as four ruminants, swine, chickens, rabbits, horses, dogs, cats, trout, and catfish. The text also extensively covers dietary energy, water requirements for livestock, and feed milling. Because the software and text are thoroughly integrated, the learner gets the most complete education possible, and the video game feel makes the work of the ration balancing interactive and fun.
