About this book

The Tropical Agriculturalist is a series of practical field guides and textbooks for: producers, farmers and farm managers; agricultural extension officers; agricultural diploma, degree and vocational students; teachers and lecturers; senior secondary students, as reference books; and adult education, rural and community development programmes. "Poultry" details the characteristics and requirements of this livestock group and how to raise and produce poultry in a variety of tropical zones and farming systems. Breeds and breeding, diseases and parasites, slaughtering, processing and marketing are all included in an easy-to-read text. The revised edition points up computer-assisted methods of management of poultry production. The book emphasises the importance of hygienic production of poultry products, evidenced by the increase in bacterial infection traced to contaminated eggs and meat. New variant CJD has highlighted the practice of feeding animal products to other animals. Up-to-date information on the best use of vaccines and prophylactics is given.
