Book Description PHI Learning, 2011. Softcover. Condition: New. 4th edition. This fourth edition of Introduction to Animal Science: Global, Biological, Social and Industry Perspectives, continues to present the most complete, up-to-date coverage of the traditional disciplines that are so essential to a solid foundation in Animal Science: nutrition, digestion, feeds, genetics, reproduction, disease, and animal behavior. Species-focused chapters include the major species (horse, dairy cattle, beef cattle, sheep, goat, poultry, and swine), as well as the minor species (aquaculture, pets/companion animals, the lamoids, and rabbits). This text acknowledges changing viewpoints toward the animals in our care. Profound societal changes have affected the animal industries and the people who work in them. Concerns over animal welfare, animal rights, food safety, biotechnology, ethical resource allocation, sustainability of agriculture as it uses the earth?s resources, and other issues now affect the usage of animals in a very real way. These issues and others are effectively dealt with in the text. The book is useful for B.Sc. (Hons) Agriculture and B.V.Sc. and M.V.Sc. students. Contents Preface. Acknowledgments.
