Mullan, B., Hernández, A., D'Souza, D. and Pluske, J. (2005) Modern pig nutrition for performance: minerals, metabolism and the environment. In: Nutritional biotechnology in the feed and food industries. Proceedings of Alltech's 21st Annual Symposium, 22 - 25 May, Lexington, Kentucky, USA pp. 185-200.
This article reviews the current dietary recommendations for several important minerals, like magnesium, selenium, nitrogen, phosphorus, copper and zinc, their role in the pig industry, particularly on pig performance and pork quality and some of the options (use of feed additives and enzymes) that are available to reduce their harmful effects on the environment, without compromising the performance of the animal.
