Due to the challenge of reducing the environmental impact of animal production as well as maintaining animal health and sustainable livestock productivity, it is necessary to change the feeding strategy of livestock. Feed supplementation with safe and efficient nutrient additives should provide optimal animal performance as well as maximize livestock productivity with respect to the environment. Nutritional feed additives used in animal nutrition and originating from different sources affect physiological processes, such as nutrient digestibility and absorption, immunity, mineral status, antioxidant activity or reproduction of livestock. Improving nutrient digestion and absorption by feed supplementation can increase micronutrient bioavailability, provide safe and functional foods, as well as reduce environmental pollution from animal production.
The scope of the present Special Issue is to publish high-quality papers concerning various sources of nutritional feed additives using in-farm animal nutrition, and to investigate their effects on livestock health and production together with environmental pollution. Therefore, we invite you to submit, in this Special Issue, your recent findings, in the form of original research, communications or reviews regarding feed supplementation with nutritional feed additives, nutraceuticals or alternative feed byproducts, the effect of feed supplementation on animal growth, health and production, gut microbiota and food safety, and environmental impact.
