The essential dietary nutrients are chemically and functionally very diverse and in this subject, AGR2AN:animal nutrition, we will provide an introduction and overview of the fundamental scientific principles through which animal nutrition is studied and we will demonstrate these principles through examples using production animals and companion animals and birds. The links between nutrition and biochemical and physiological functions will also be drawn in order to illustrate the interrelating aspects of nutrition with other life sciences.
