Livestock Behaviour - A Practical Guide.
By Ronald Kilgore & Clive Dalton.

This excellent New Zealand book for Stockmen and Agriculture and Veterinary Students concentrates on what is of practical use in livestock farming.

The aim of this book is to bring together the essential information on animal behaviour for those concerned with the husbandry, management and welfare of farm animals.

This book is ideal for diploma or degree students in where animal behaviour is part of their courses on animal production and health.
It aims to generally increase the wellbeing and productivity of farm livestock.

The scientific principles are explained, followed by separate chapters describing the behaviour of Cattle, Sheep, Goats, Deer, Horses, Pigs, Hens and Dogs. Special attention is paid to birth, rearing, early life up to puberty, sexual development, and mating & reproduction, and special aspects of production such as milking, intensive fattening, housing, stress and training.

A realistic and practical approach is adopted to the issues of animal welfare and stress in farm animals. The book shows very clearly how an understanding of animal behaviour can be used not only to improve the welfare of farm animals, but also the economic return from livestock production.
