This textbook describes how to carry out the practices which are necessary in handling farm animals.

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 Mmphasises 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.
