About this book

Ever since the earliest days of animal agriculture, it has been recognized that the stockperson caring for livestock plays a crucial role in managing their health, productivity and welfare. However, until recently very little research had been conducted to assess and quantify this and to evaluate the implications for the training of stockpersons. This book applies scientific rigour to the subject. It considers the full range of human characteristics which have implications for animal performance and welfare, and quantifies these effects. It then provides details of and the rationale for training and selection programmes to manipulate these human characteristics in the animal industries in order to improve animal performance and welfare. The book provides a contribution to the literature and should interest workers in animal production and veterinary science, as well as applied psychologists and ethologists.
