Continued genetic development of pigs and poultry has been the foundation of profitable production within a competitive market. However, the challenges of these production increases have undoubtedly taken their toll on reproductive function in all breeding livestock, with the incidence of infertility increasing at an alarming rate. For example, it has recently been estimated that over 40 per cent of sows are culled due to fertility problems, compared to just 12 per cent with feet and leg issues. This edited collection of papers is taken from a series of seminars, devoted to bringing together some of the world's leading authorities in the field of pig and poultry reproduction. The fundamental aim being to re-examine the current trends in productivity in the pig and poultry industries, and to identify nutritional means to improve fertility. It considers the effects of essential nutrients in optimising productivity, and discusses innovative applications of nutrition that will help to enhance fertility. The success of such innovations within entrepreneurial integrated systems is also covered, together with the importance of producing a quality chick and piglet at birth/hatching. Finally, the role of management and the need for least cost production is discussed. "Nutritional Approaches to Arresting the decline in Fertility of Pigs and Poultry" is aimed at nutritionists and animal producers as well as students and researchers studying animal and applied biological sciences.
