About this book

A major update of the internationally recognised classic introductory textbook on farm animal husbandry and welfare for students of agriculture and veterinary science. As well as covering large scale commercial rearing of animals for food, this new edition gives special attention to alternative farming systems. Structured on a species-by-species or group-by-group basis the book puts forward the case for the humane treatment of farm animals in as rational a way as possible. Prepared on behalf of the Universities Federation for Animal Welfare (UFAW), a leading world authority on animal welfare.
