About the book

Modern livestock and poultry production faces several challenges because of improvement of productivity and intensification of the production system to supply animal-derived food products for the burgeoning human population and alteration of food preference. This has resulted in concerns on animal and planetary health. With the improvement of animal production, farm animals experience lowered disease resistance to pathogenic microorganisms, immunity, tolerance to stress, and greater incidences of metabolic and production disorders. Moreover, the animal production system is blamed for contributions to several environmental issues – greenhouse gas emission, nutrient pollution, antibiotic resistance and water management. These issues need to be addressed appropriately for sustainable future animal production. Feed science and nutrition of livestock play a pivotal role to manage animal health and environmental emissions and excretion.

This book project will cover different aspects of dietary management and feeding of animals to improve animal health, for example, acidosis, production diseases, intestinal health, immunity, antioxidant status, modulation of ruminal fermentation, heat stress management, and amelioration of toxicity and to decrease environmental burdens of animals production, for example, reduction of methane and nitrous oxide emission, nitrogen and phosphorus excretion, heavy metal pollution, and lessening the in-feed antibiotic use.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Dolores Kuzelj

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
