Trace Elements in Animal Production Systems
edited by P. Schlegel

Trace Elements in Animal Production Systems deals with trace elements, such as cobalt, copper, iron, manganese, selenium and zinc which are essential to modern animal nutrition, but are increasingly detrimental to soil and water quality in today's globalized production.

Trace Elements in Animal Production Systems is a valuable resource for researchers and professionals in the life sciences of animal nutrition, soil and water quality, for actors in the feed industry and policy making.
