Summary

Modern Livestock and Poultry Production gives the reader a very true sense of the world of the livestock industry. It sets the scene for work in the field with an overview of the industry, then moves into detailed and engaging discussions of specific species. The book addresses animal genetics, breeding, nutrition, biotechnology and product promotion, based on the most up-to-date research available. The book thoroughly addresses such major farm animal enterprises as beef cattle, swine, sheep, horses, poultry and dairy cattle. And, it covers minor animal enterprises including rabbits, bison, ratites, llamas and alpacas. All of this is complemented by an extensive discussion of career opportunities and job expectations in the industry, as well as such industry concerns as environmental and safety issues.
