This textbook describes how to carry out the practices which are necessary in handling farm animals. Many of these techniques are usually learnt the hard way through experience and have rarely, if ever, been provided in book form for beginners. These basic practices of animal husbandry are set out in a clear and logical way which is especially suitable for students. No previous knowledge or skill is assumed: the book presents a `how to' rather than a theoretical `why' approach, and emphasizes how to perform comptetently and safely essential techniques such as driving and moving a herd of cattle, dipping sheep, disbudding, dehorning, cleaning and disinfection, castration, keeping records, detecting heat and diagnosing pregnancy and many others.
