Management and Welfare of Farm Animals provides comprehensive and up-to-date information on the humane management of all major farmed species in both large-scale food production and alternative farming systems. Designed for agricultural and veterinary science students, this classic textbook covers the management and welfare of species including dairy and beef cattle, veal calves, sheep, pigs, chickens, turkeys, goats, horses, and farmed fish.

The sixth edition incorporates recent developments throughout, including an entirely new chapter on international developments in animal welfare law, politics, and practice. Updated chapters discuss topics such as 'high welfare' livestock systems, the impact of automation and new technologies on production and welfare, the ecological impact and sustainability issues of large-scale production systems, and more.

  • Provides a basic understanding of the principles and practices of professional and humane farm animal management
  • Covers animal husbandry, behavior as an indicator of animal welfare, and the assessment, monitoring, and promotion of improved welfare at the farm level
  • Offers updated information on free-range poultry, robot milking, automated disease scanning, and pastoral systems in the developing world
  • Includes less-common farm species such as South American camelids, ostriches, and game birds

Management and Welfare of Farm Animals, Sixth Edition remains the ideal textbook for students in professional, technical, or vocational education courses on the management and welfare of farm animals.
