About this title


Written and compiled by Anne Macey with contributions from writers and farmers across Canada and the northern U.S. The Organic Livestock Handbook is divided into three sections: Section 1 explains the principles of organic livestock husbandry and includes chapters on animal welfare, nutrition and health care, and converting to organic methods. Section 2 provides information on various management tools available to the farmer. Topics covered are health care alternatives, methods to control internal parasites, management-intensive grazing, manure management, fly control, handling to minimize stress, marketing, certification and record keeping. Section 3 addresses those aspects of management for each livestock type which are particularly significant in an organic farming system. It uses examples from Canada and the northern United States to illustrate the various types or organic livestock enterprises that exist today, from dairy cows to honey bees. Photographs and figures supplement the text throughout. Appendix materials include a comparison of various organic livestock standards in use today and information on where to find supplies and services. The Handbook is spiral bound with a durable cover similar to its companion volume The Organic Field Crop Handbook.
