Animal behavior is the basis for ascertaining welfare and is a topic of ever growing importance. This undergraduate-level textbook is organized into three sections covering all major farm animals of the world, both mainstream and specialist: large farm animal species (horses, cattle, swine, sheep and goats), poultry and farmed birds and non-domesticated animals such as deer. Each chapter describes the elements of behavior of a particular species in a clear and uniform format. Background to domestication, innate and learned behavior, social behavior, mating behavior, activity patterns, senses, behavior in the young animal, vision and hearing are all covered for each species. Understanding of ethological knowledge is necessary both as an aid for diagnosis, and for the assessment of health and welfare in the single animal or a group of animals, making the book valuable for veterinary practitioners as well as students at university and tertiary level.

About the Author:

Ingvar Ekesbo as professor in Animal Hygiene at the Swedish Agricultural University's veterinary faculty, Ingvar Ekesbo, DVM, PhD, was deeply interested in research and education regarding the relationship between farm animal environment and animal health. He got deep practical experience of animal husbandry through part time clinical practice during forty years. He introduced ethology as discipline in the Swedish veterinary curriculum which led to the establishment in 1987 of a chair in ethology at his department, one of the first at any veterinary faculty. After his retirement he has been continuing research, education and consultancy. Ekesbo has been president of the International Society for Animal Hygiene, the International Society for Applied Ethology, Swedish representative in Council of Europe when the Farm Animal Welfare Convention was elaborated 1971-1976, and, member, and several years chairman, in the Council's Standing Committee for Farm Animal Welfare 1979-1998.

Review:

"Overall, this book provides an interesting viewpoint and ethological description of farmed mammal and bird species. For the person wanting a ready reference to look up the normal behaviour of a range of farmed species from ratites to rabbits, this book would be
a valuable addition to have on the shelf..." (Andrew Fisher 2012-04-01)

"This book attemps to provide an easy-to-use resource for initially accessing that information and accomlishes the task quite well.... The book acieves its goals of introducing basic information on a broad spectrum of farm animals and is an excellent resource fora nyone who needs this type of information." (Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association 2012-03-15)

"...The author has made a brave and valuable contribution to the building of bridges between pure and applied ethology."
(S. T. Hall)

"...The author has made a brave and valuable contribution to the building of bridges between pure and applied ethology." (S. T. Hall 2011-08-01)
