About this book

Written by expert animal agriculture producers for animal agriculture producers, this comprehensive text/reference describes in detail the skills and techniques needed by those who manage livestock – with a focus on maintaining and maximizing animal well-being and productivity. Hands-on in approach, it fills the gap between classroom and laboratory – showing step-by-step how to perform the various manipulative skills of the animal agriculturist in a real-world context. Unusually complete in coverage, it presents techniques and discussions for managing all species of animal agriculture including beef cattle, general cattle, sheep, goats, and poultry, from breeding and conception through their complete lifecycle.
