Created for sophomore - senior level undergraduate courses that deal with farm animal well-being, with perspectives on stress, behavior, and environmental design. Also an ideal supplementary text in such agriculture courses as Farm Animal Behavior, Farm Animal Production, and Environmental Management for Farm Animals. Focusing on three major areas of consideration (physical, dietary, and social) required to successfully maintain a balanced, low-stress environment for farm animals, this comprehensive survey discusses the broad range of environmental needs of animals, how these needs are met, and why providing an adequate environment is critical to animal well-being as well as economics in animal enterprises. * An excellent reference for livestock producers and all professionals serving the animal industry.
