CAIRO BOOKS's Description
The idea that current methods of food production are not sustainable in the
long-term is a controversial topic. This book provides information that will
advance a form of livestock production that meets the long- and short-term
goals of human food production, minimizing degradation of natural resources.
Important concerns regarding food safety, particularly antibiotic and chemical
residues in meat, milk and other livestock foods, have stimulated renewed
interest in alternative methods of promoting livestock health.
Alternative Health Practices for Livestock is the first compilation of its
kind for veterinarians, agriculture extension educators and livestock
producers. It provides a well-referenced overview of some of the alternative
livestock practices currently being examined.
A much needed information source on alternative health for large animals
Contributions from veterinarians, farmers, extension educators and university
Discusses the necessity for more validated scientific assessments of
alternative and herbal therapies in livestock production
Includes chapters on ways to promote alternative methods of health care for
livestock, including steps to obtain research funding.
