*Animal welfare/behavior issues are becoming increasingly important
*Combines theoretical and practical details about the social behavior of our most common farm species
*Written by leading experts from around the world

An understanding of social behavior is increasingly necessary in farm animal husbandry as more animals are housed in groups rather than in individual stalls or pens. There may be economic or welfare reasons for such housing. This book is the first to specifically address this important subject. The chapters fall into three broad subject areas: concepts in social behavior, species specific chapters and current issues. Authors include leading experts from Europe, North America, Australia and New Zealand.

Review:


"Contributors in agriculture, animal science, and animal rights from around the world apply social behavior findings from classical ethnology works on wild animals to animals that do not get to choose their own social groups, which individuals are housed together, and other dimensions that normally would serve as media for social interaction. The information is designed to provide insight for the management, productivity, and welfare of the animals. They begin by setting out concepts in social behavior, then concentrate on species-specific animal behavior, and conclude by taking up some contemporary topics such as personality and people as social actors in the world of farm animals."--SciTech Book News
