Synopsis:

This book, previously titled Impacts of Livestock Production, objectively deals with a number of important issues that are affecting livestock production and the public perception of animal production on a global basis. Some of these issues include consumption of animal products and human health, global warming, biotechnology and animal rights. The volume examines domestication of animals and their contributions to human welfare, animal products in the human diet, principles of animal nutrition and the scientific feeding of livestock, feed additives and growth promotants in animal production, environmental concerns involving livestock production, livestock grazing and rangelands issues, industrialization and globalization of animal agriculture, food quality and safety issues, bioethics, animal welfare, animal rights, and biotechnology issues, and livestock integration into sustainable resource utilization. For anyone involved with animal and poultry science.


Review:

Food quality and safety. Bioethics.
Animal welfare and animal rights. Biotechnology.
Environmental concerns and human health issues.

Contemporary Issues in Animal Agriculture, Third Edition discusses some of the major controversial issues impacting animal production. The author critically evaluates societal concerns, presents several points of view, and points the way towards an acceptable middle ground that can accommodate the diverse viewpoints of society, including those of the livestock industry.

Each chapter has been written so that it might stand alone. The author extensively cites recent literature, providing an entry into scientific literature for those who want more information and exposing readers to scientific literature as contrasted with the popular press.

Animal science students, agriculture majors and anyone who wishes to be a more educated consumer will find this book interesting, informative, and invaluable.
