About the book

Animal Husbandry is intended primarily as text for the basic course in Animal Industries and Farm Animals, as the case may be. It should prove useful as a reference Book for those involved in livestock production. This book is not an encyclopaedia. Rather, it is a concise and up-to-date collection of those facts and judgements that can give a Beginning Student a well-rounded and clear Picture of the scope, importance, and operation of our great livestock, packing, and diary industries. Since many students major in other fields, and make this their Principal contact with a very important field of knowledge, an effort has been made to confine the Material to the essential facts and to maintain student interest by the liberal use of pictures, tables and charts.
