This text represents an attempt to summarize and consolidate a considerable amount of information available in the literature with respect to laboratory analytical techniques which are commonly used in animal nutrition studies. There are few laboratory manuals on analytical techniques in Animal Nutrition written by renowned teachers and scientists of National Agriculture Research System of the country. However there is no single book of laboratory analytical techniques on animal nutrition which fulfills the requirements of post graduate students of animals sciences by providing all the required latest information about various analytical methods at one place. The chapters are given in details with a candid and simple manner. Each practical method has been introduced with the principle and text materials which will orient the students with the subject.
