From the Back Cover:

Introduction to Animal Science: Global, Biological, Social, and Industry Perspectives, Second Edition presents a complete, up-to-date discussion of the traditional disciplines that are so essential to a solid foundation in Animal Science, including nutrition, digestion, feeds, genetics, reproduction, disease, and animal behavior. Species-focused chapters include the major species (horse, dairy cattle, beef cattle, sheep, goat, poultry. and seine) as well as the minor species (aquaculture. pets/companion animals, the lamoids, and rabbits).

However, this text is more than a traditional treatment of Animal Science. The Study of modern Animal Science also requires a comprehensive, non-traditional approach that effectively introduces the discipline as an ever-changing and integral part of every aspect of human existence?a task that is well-accomplished in this unique text by author W. Stephen Damron. In his own informal and engaging style. Dr. Damron not only covers all of the major species and their concerns but also challenges the reader to consider the many pressing interests relevant to Animal Science as it influences and is influenced by society today:

  • Animnal welfare and animal rights
  • Animals as consumers of grain
  • Food safety
  • Factors affecting world agriculture
  • The value of animals to humans
  • Careers in Animal Science
  • The role of animals in sustainable agriculture
  • Worldwide systems of agriculture production
  • Biotechnology and genetic engineering
  • Vertical integration

From the discussions of West Nile virus in horses to Agribusiness as a career, this new edition provides everything that is necessary for an outstanding, cutting-edge introduction to this exciting field.
