Summary

Innovative in content and perspective, this introduction to contemporary animal science puts all of animal science in perspective by examining not only the traditional biological topics (e.g., major species, nutrition, digestion, feeds, genetics, reproduction, disease, and animal behavior) but by exploring the dynamic nature of animal science and the many ways in which it is a piece of a much larger whole of agriculture (e.g., vertical integration of industry structure) and agriculture within society (e.g., how animals fit into all of society and how animals contribute to the well being of man from a worldwide perspective).

The Value of Animals to Man. Factors Affecting World Agricultural Structure. Worldwide Systems of Agricultural Production. Introduction to Nutrition. The Gastrointestinal Tract. Feedstuffs. Genetics. Animal Breeding. Biotechnology and Genetic Engineering. Reproductive Physiology. Lactation. Animal Behavior and Handling. Animal Health and Diseases. Vertical Integration. The Beef Cattle Industry. The Dairy Cattle Industry. The Poultry Industry. The Swine Industry. The Sheep and Goat Industries. The Horse. Companion Animals. The Llamoids. Rabbits. Aquaculture. Careers and Career Preparation in Animal Science. Animals As Consumers of Grain: Asset or Liability. Food Safety. Animal Welfare and Animal Rights. The Role of Animals in Sustainable Agriculture.

For anyone interested in an expanded view of contemporary animal science.
