Product Description
Describes in detail the holistic approach to the consideration of the health and welfare of the farm animal in relation to the environment in which it is kept. The health and welfare of not only the individual animal but also the herd is discussed comprehensively, beginning with a definition of the terms employed. This is followed by a full analysis of the measurements and observations which can be used to determine the health and welfare status of animals. International and national legislation and private health schemes that are intended to control the spread and eradication of animal diseases are discussed. Included also is the use and form of legislation for the improvement of animal welfare. A description of the role that the animal welfare societies play is given and the effect of different nutritional and housing regimes on animal welfare is considered. The book ends with a look into the future and assesses the effects of new breeding techniques, genetic engineering and the increase of worldwide government involvement in animal production. ...

Editorial Review

Product Description
This book explains what every farmer and student of livestock husbandry needs to know about how to maintain animals in good health to achieve maximum efficiency. Most of the notorious killer diseases of the past have been eliminated or kept under control with vaccines or antibiotics. Under intensive conditions, however, animals have become affected by less obvious but nevertheless serious and often chronic infections which can have a damaging impact on productivity. Dramatic improvements in efficiency can be obtained when animals are really healthy. This can be achieved by understanding the appropriate nutrition, husbandry, housing and management that will ensure freedom from disease. The book describes the infections which now tend to cause particular problems and sets out suitable techniques for prevention and control. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Product Description
The science of animal production has recently become headline news.The cloning of sheep, the use of pig xenotransplants and bovine somatotrophin, as well as mad-cow disease, are all examples of how livestock production is related to food safety, human health, ethics and quality of life.The relationship between intensive developed-world animal production and third world development also raises ethical issues.These are just some of the topics addressed in this book, which has its origin in a special symposium held at the VIII World Congress on Animal Production held in June 1998 in Korea.Additional chapters have been specially commissioned for inclusion in the book. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Fascinating Questions; What Are Your Answers?
Thought-provoking" is probably the best way to describe this book.A series of papers, primarily those presented at a 1998 symposium as a part of a Congress on Animal Production, each of which present some of thequestions raised by many of the new and newer methods of production ofanimal protein for food.Essentially the questions raised revolve aboutthe axis of, "What is it ethical to do in order to allow ten billionpeople to eat?"Several different perspectives are used as startingpoints, though the primary basis is that of Religion (abstract orparticular).Answers are not all provided; these are left as an exercisefor the reader.Though the book and the papers contained therein havetheir origins with professional ethicists, geneticists, and AnimalScientists, the layman can read and enjoy at least parts ~ large parts, ibelieve ~ of it.I suspect this would be a fine supplemental textbook forstudies in either Ethics or Animal Production, or even other, less closelyrelated science disciplines.Nevertheless, it does not "feel"like a pure textbook; i read it for interest's sake, and enjoyed it.

5-0 out of 5 stars At last! - clarification of those ethical issues & choices!
Increasingly novel & sophisticated applications of science & technology to animal breeding and production are raising ethical concerns in many countries in an era when public caring and spiritual values are widely rising.Ethical, political and trade issues in how we treat farmanimals have become headline news. To name but a few: quality of life infactory farming systems; cloning; genetic engineering; "Mad Cow"disease (BSE); transplantation of animal organs into humans; bovine &porcine somatotrophin.Complex cultural, emotional, philosophical andspiritual reactions have emerged to the economic, scientific and technicaldevelopments in agriculture.At last an authoritative textbook has emergedto guide us through this tangled and growing web of concern, conflict anddebate.This excellent new book "Livestock,Ethics & Quality of Life" does not seek to thrust answers upon usbut to clarify the arguments and issues for us so that we can review andunderstand the range of approaches available and make our own informedassessments.Our way is then cleared to choose a forward direction that isbased on clarity, discernment and wisdom rather than fantasy, fear andmuddled thinking.It originated in a special symposium held at the 1998World Congress on Animal Production but additional chapters have beenspecially commissioned to provide a more comprehensive and balancedaccount. ...

Worth buying just for the comparative charts on what vitamins, proteins, and minerals are in your food.

5-0 out of 5 stars This book made me go Vegan
About 5 years ago, a friend of mine loaned me this book. I was semi-interested in Veganism at the time, and he told me that this was a good book to read. Once I started reading it, I couldn't put it down. As soon as I'd finished the very last page, I decided at that very moment that I would go Vegan. Seriously, as soon as I finished the book... EPIPHANY! I would stop poisoning myself and never exploit animals again. I gave away all of the terrible animal foods in my kitchen and restocked with plant foods immediately. I mean.. how could I not? This book does an EXCELLENT job of informing people about the benefits of a plant-based diet and the awful truth about how terrible animal products are. I would just feel like a total a*hole if I went back to eating animals after what John Robbins had to say about it. I've never felt better in my entire life! This book actually saved me from poor health and from torturing any more animals and the planet. Everyone should read this book! It should be required reading material for all school health classes (although it probably won't ever be because the meat and dairy industries are so damn powerful and would never let anything hurt their dirty profits). Anyway, WOW! What an awesome book! Thank you, John Robbins, for saving my life!

1-0 out of 5 stars This book is dangerous propaganda
I've owned this book for 10 years. Ok, I admit, I bought his lie.

I was a vegan and vegetarian for a combined 6 years. Then I found Sally Fallon's Nourishing Traditions that completely refutes this and Robbins' other work. See also Fallon's mind blowing DVD The Oiling of America. There you'll find out why Robbins' family members died not from their Ice Cream, but from the SUGAR and CHEMICALS added to their ice cream. That's just one major fact that John Robbins would prefer to avoid with his vegan, zero-carbon, globalist agenda. You'll also learn how Robbins is lying to you and faking graphs and information to steer his agenda.

And anyone who's ever seen a photo of John Robbins knows he looks anything but healthy. Is that an appeal to ridicule? Hardly.

This book boarders on *eugenics* in its detrimental impact on people's health. Reading Fallon, you'll find out why you'll be healthy again if you eat an 1800's diet, and don't follow this diatribe. It helped save my life, and it just may help you too.

Stay far, far away from this book and other "low fat, no saturated fat, vegan" disinformation. It'll kill you, and that's likely people like Robbins' agenda.

And don't judge me conspiratorial and kill the messenger. While that may be the easiest shortcut to thinking, it's wiser to study the two above references and see for yourself if what I'm saying is true. It just may save your life - much less blow your mind. And if you've read this far, you owe it to yourself.

Protect yourself and your family. DON'T buy this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Must Have
This was an excellent book! It arrived promptly in excellent condition. I had borrowed and read this book prior to purchasing it but it has so much information that I wanted to keep it as a reference. Everyone should read it!

5-0 out of 5 stars What an eye opener!
I had never considered vegetarianism in any form or gave much thought at all about where my food came from.I actually read this book because my favorite musical artist had briefly mentioned in his web bio that he read this after a fan gave it to him years ago and has been a vegetarian ever since.Being the ultimate skeptic, I had to see why.After a few short days of reading this book, I too have switched to a plant-based diet.The depth into which Mr. Robbins delves is quite sobering.Clearly and very logically, (and without passing judgement), he states the reasons that the American diet is not optimal for ourselves, our environment, or our grandchildren.It is easy to pick individual arguments and throw rocks at them but,taken as a whole, it is astounding the clarity you will find when you look at all the arguments and weigh them against your own evidence and observations.Keep in mind this is not a "how-to" book on vegetarianism at all.It is a WHY-to book that I wish I had read years ago. ...
