There is now widespread interest in the development of in vitro methods for assessing the digestibility of feedstuffs for monogastric farm animals, i.e. pigs and poultry. In vivo methods require the use of surgically modified animals, which is becoming less favored due to an increased awareness of animal welfare; such methods are also expensive and slow. A number of research groups around the world are now developing in vitro methods, and this book, based on a workshop held at the Rowett Research Institute in October 1990, presents our current knowledge of the subject. Contributors are leading authorities on the subject from Europe, North America and Japan. The book will therefore be of interest to research workers in animal nutrition in both academic institutions and the feedstuff industry.
