THE LIFESTYLE-BLOCK OWNER AND FARMERS' GO-TO REFERENCE BOOKWhether you run dairy cattle, beef cattle, sheep, deer, goats, pigs or poultry,advice that reflects farming practice in New Zealand is indispensable. This book, written by experts from both Massey University's Institute of Veterinary,Animal and Biomedical Sciences and academics at Lincoln University, is of value and interest to everyone from students and farmers to those involved in the agribusiness, resource management, nutrition, food technology and ecology sectors. The emphasis is on the grass-fed reality of beef, sheep and deer, with significant discussion of the different systems of dairy cow production. Social issues, animal welfare, food safety, drug residues and environmental cost are also covered.S ALES POINTS* Expert advice from leading animal scientists and veterinarians at Massey and Lincoln universities* Easy to follow and jargon-free* Currently no other similar book in the market* A lot of information available on livestock production in New Zealand is on industry websites or in the scientific literature and much is material from outside the country, usually from the USA, and does not reflect farming practice in New Zealand. This book addresses that situation.
