This undergraduate agricultural textbook opens with the careers available in the livestock industry, the anatomy and feeding of livestock animals, and farm animal breeding practices. Later chapters delve into the breeds, selection, feeding, management, housing, and marketing of beef cattle, swine, sheep, goats, horses, poultry, and dairy cattle. Abundant color photographs help bring animal husbandry practices to life. The ninth edition moves vocabulary to the beginning of each chapter and expands the material on producing meat goats.
