Improving the care of the pig and other livestock

By Peter English, Gethyn Burgess, Ricardo Segundo, John Dunne

In modern animal production the role and importance of the stockperson has been neglected. While it is appreciated in some sections of the animal industry that the technical skills and knowledge of stockpeople have a large impact on animal efficiency, health and welfare, the role of other human factors has in general been ignored. This practical book seeks to address these issues and to highlight the benefits to both the animals and the farm which will accrue from improved stockmanship.
