It is well known that current feed and food production are environmentally unsustainable. New research insights have shown that insects and agricultural by-products could contribute to the sustainability of animal nutrition.
For this Special Issue, we are interested in research papers or reviews aimed at evaluating the use of insects or agricultural by-products derived from agronomy practices, the food industry, or market disposal, as ingredients for animal feed, in order to reduce loss in the production chain while improving the health status of the livestock and the nutritional quality of the products.
