The book, Nutrition of Hyperprolific Sows is a comprehensive compilation of data and information on the ever-changing nutritional requirements of the modern hyperprolific sow. The collaborators, led by Dr. Antonio Palomo Yagüe, set out to build a compendium of knowledge that could be used as a central reference on the current challenges faced with these sows. This book can serve as a reference for nutritionists, researchers, veterinarians, producers, professors, geneticists and allied swine industry personnel.
The book is a result of an international effort involving several industry professionals representing all facets of nutrition, health, production and research. The team has assembled feeding recommendations and trends in feeding, established new nutritional requirements for these hyperprolific sows and defined the link between nutrition, endocrine status and reproduction in pigs.
