Perfect Knowledge Management

By: B. J. Rothschild

Nutrition Reference Publication

Excerpt: If in fact O were known - that is, if it were known in advance whether a year class was G, P, or C, then the correct course of action would be obvious (Figure 2).

Microbiology of Animal Feeds

By: J. P. F. Dmelio
