Modern Livestock and Poultry Production, seventh edition paints a very vivid picture of the animal agriculture industry and provides the information necessary to pursue a career in the field. Readers will appreciate the industry overview and the detailed discussions of specific species. The author introduces the reader to a variety of major and minor farm animal species, including such topics as breeds, marketing, feeding and management of the species and common diseases and parasites. All of the information presented is based on the latest research available. Beyond discussion of the animals, the book takes a close look at career opportunities and job expectations in the field. Additionally, the reader will find this book useful on a long-term basis as it addresses very specific nutrition needs and feeding requirements of such animals as horses, ponies, goats, sheep, beef cattle, swine, rabbits, hens, ducks and more.
