Managing the prenatal environment to enhance livestock productivity

Author: Paul L Greenwood
Publisher: Dordrecht ; London : Springer, 2010.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Prenatal life is the period of maximal development in animals, and it is well recognised that factors that alter development can have profound effects on the embryonic, fetal and postnatal animal. Scientists involved in research on livestock productivity have for decades studied postnatal consequences of fetal development on productivity. Recently, however, there has been a surge in interest in how to manage  Read more...

Contents: Part I: Quantifying the magnitude of prenatal effects on productivity: 1. Postnatal consequences of the maternal environment and of growth during prenatal life for productivity of ruminants --
2. Quantification of prenatal effects on productivity in pigs --
3. Managing prenatal development of broiler chickens to improve productivity and thermotolerance --
Part II: Mechanistic basis of postnatal consequences of fetal development: 4. Biological mechanisms of fetal development relating to postnatal growth, efficiency and carcass characteristics in ruminants.
Responsibility: [edited by] Paul L. Greenwood [and others].

Abstract:

This reference reviews phenotypic consequences of prenatal development, and it details mechanisms that underpin these effects in ruminants, pigs and poultry. It is the first livestock-specific book  Read more...
