This book provides detailed scientific information on the processing of agro-waste material to provide inexpensive alternatives to non-traditional feedstuffs for use in poultry and farm animal nutrition. The types of waste material considered for such use include waste from poultry processing plants, hide and tanning, municipal refuse, and sewage sludge. Special attention is given to waste from fruit, vegetables, and brewers' dried grain.
For each type of waste considered, detailed information on yields, chemical analysis, nutritive values, and biohazards is given. Special attention is paid to detailed processing methods with layouts. As the inclusion of wastes in diets can cause problems of palatability and feed acceptability, these important aspects are thoroughly discussed and solutions given.
The aim of this book is to help create new feedstuffs for poultry and farm animals from the agro-industry and to mobilize the neglected waste as a feedstuff to lower the price of animal products such as eggs, white and red meat, milk, etc.
Furthermore, this book aims to contribute to the campaign against hunger in the developing world and to reduce the competition between animals and human beings for cereals and pulses. Accordingly the global pollution problem will be reduced.
