Now in its Third Edition,Introduction to Animal Science: Global, Biological, Social and Industry Perspectivescontinues to present the most complete, up-to-date coverage ofnbsp;on nutrition, digestion, feeds, genetics, reproduction, disease, and animal behavior.nbsp; Species-focused chapters include the major species (horse, dair cattle, beef cattle, sheep, goat, poultry, and swine) as well as the minor species (aquaculture, pets/companion animals, the lamoids, and rabbits). In addition, however, the study of modern Animal Science also requires a comprehensive,non-traditionalapproach that effectively introduces the discipline as an ever-changing and integral part of every aspect of human existence.nbsp; For this reason, author W. Stephen Damron not only presents thorough coverage of the major species and their respective concerns - he also challenges the reader to consider the many pressing interests relevant to Animal Science as it influences and is influenced by society today.Four-Part Organization easily accommodates the three major approaches of animal science: biological, industry or species.nbsp; A Global perspectivenbsp;discusses the impact of animals on humans throughout the world. Introducesnbsp;readers to types of agriculture found around the world and the influences other countries have on U.S. animal industries.nbsp; Introducesnbsp;readers to concerns affecting industry such as animal welfare, animal rights, food safety, ethical resource allocation, and sustainability of agriculture. Includes highly publicized issues such as mad cow disease and bioterrorism.nbsp;Anyone interested in or involved in animal science. nbsp;
