Note Editore

Genomics and Biotechnology for Livestock Production offers the latest developments and advances made in animal production technologies and systems. Written and edited by experts in animal science, this book addresses the full scope of animal production processes. Technologies for genomics, reproduction, nutrition and domestication are detailed from real-world examples and case studies of practical usage. Animal care and health management is also covered, guiding readers through the most advanced technologies for preventing and treating diseases, toxicological effects, administering vaccines, and maintaining overall animal health and welfare in production systems.

This is the ideal resource for animal scientists and livestock veterinarians in the food-animal production field. Environmental scientists, animal welfare experts, and animal science students will also find this resource useful and applicable to procedures in their disciplines.

  • Details practices for cattle, horses, pigs, sheep, poultry animals, fish and regionally relevant wildlife species
  • Provides in-depth reviews of livestock and veterinary technologies from global experts
  • Features examples and case studies of both successful and unsuccessful applications in the field
