About this book

"The 11th edition of Gracey's Meat Hygiene is a hardcover textbook that will be an excellent, practical reference for slaughterhouse veterinarians, food safety inspectors, and meat industry personnel. This book provides a comprehensive introduction for readers new to the fields of slaughter and meat safety, although it is likely to be even more valuable to readers with some experience in those fields."
Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, 15 September 2015
