This Special Issue aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the current knowledge and recent advancements in the field of mineral nutrition for livestock production. It will provide new insights into the impact of mineral nutrition on the growth performance, health, and reproduction of farmed animals, as well as the environmental and economic implications of mineral supplementation in livestock production systems.
The purpose of this Special Issue is to share the latest scientific knowledge and insights on the role of mineral nutrition in farmed animal production, and to provide a valuable resource for researchers, educators, industry stakeholders, and policymakers interested in advancing our understanding of this topic.
We are pleased to announce the upcoming Special Issue on the topic of "Impact of Mineral Supplementation for Farmed Animal's Growth Performance, Health Managements, and Reproduction". This aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the current knowledge and recent advancements in the field of mineral nutrition for livestock production.
Minerals are essential components of livestock nutrition. Proper mineral intake plays a vital role in promoting animal growth, health, and reproductive performance. The availability and balance of minerals in animal feed can significantly impact animal productivity, health, and welfare, as well as the economic viability and sustainability of livestock production systems.
The Special Issue will cover a wide range of topics related to mineral nutrition in livestock production, including but not limited to:
- The effects of mineral supplementation on growth performance, feed efficiency, and nutrient utilization in farmed animals.
- The impact of mineral nutrition on animal health, including aspects related to the immune and antioxidant systems, microbiota, and the mitigation of antibiotic resistance.
- The role of minerals in reproductive function, including their effects on fertility, conception rates, embryo development, and milk production.
- The influence of mineral nutrition on meat, milk, and egg quality, as well as the sensory and nutritional properties of animal products.
- How mineral nutrition impact the environmental footprint of livestock production and strategies to face this issue.
- The advances in mineral supplementation strategies and technologies, including the development of novel mineral sources, feed additives, and precision nutrition approaches.
We welcome original research articles, review articles, and short communications that address the above-mentioned topics or related areas of research. All manuscripts will undergo a rigorous peer-review process to ensure high scientific standards and relevance to the scope of the Special Issue.
We believe that this Special Issue will provide a valuable resource for researchers, educators, industry stakeholders, and policymakers who are interested in advancing our understanding of the role of mineral nutrition in livestock production. We look forward to receiving your contributions and sharing the latest scientific knowledge and insights on this important topic.
