Commercial Poultry Nutrition

Commercial Poultry Nutrition has become the standard text for all involved in the various poultry industries. This 3rd edition is a major revision with virtually all sections being updated to accommodate the ever-changing genetic potential of broilers, layers, turkeys and waterfowl.

The last edition was printed in 1997, and in the intervening years, there have been major changes in poultry nutrition and commercial feeding practices. The 3rd edition emphasizes nutritional programs that allow for genetic potential to be realized in both meat and egg birds.

Drs. Leeson & Summers have once again produced a classic text that will be essential reading for nutritionists, veterinarians, poultry managers and all professionals in the poultry and feed industries. >> Learn more
