Gut Efficiency Book from C.H.I.P.S.

Gut Efficiency—The Key Ingredient in Pig and Poultry Production
Elevating Animal Performance and Health
edited by J.A. Taylor-Pickard

Gut Efficiency—The Key Ingredient in Pig and Poultry Production is taken from a series of seminars that brought together some of the world's leading authorities in the field of pig and poultry nutrition and production.

In Gut Efficiency—The Key Ingredient in Pig and Poultry Production the fundamental theme is to address the interaction between nutrition and the gut ecosystem as a means to enhance health, performance and ultimately profitability.
