Overview

The eighth edition of this highly-acclaimed, best-selling book gives an overview of the Animal Sciences; it highlights the significant biological principles, scientific relationships, and management practices of livestock production and management in a condensed but informative manner. Included are chapters on reproduction, genetics, nutrition, lactation, consumer products, and more. It covers the breeding, feeding, and management of beef cattle, dairy cattle, horses, sheep, swine, poultry, goats, and aquaculture. Basic and sufficiently simple for those with limited livestock experience, Scientific Farm Animal Production is still informative for those who have a livestock production background; it is an excellent reference work for livestock producers and others desiring an overview of livestock production principles and management.
