Description: First published in 1965, the Sixth Edition of Anatomy and Physiology of Farm Animals has been fully updated to include current science and terminology (specifically neurophysiology, cardiovascular physiology, and reproductive physiology). A chapter on Body Defenses has been added, including information on vaccination. In addition, information on the domestic chicken has been added throughout the book. This book maintains a strong reputation for use in academic concentrations in animal and agricultural sciences, as well as reaching into veterinary fields.
