Publisher Comments:

Introduction to Animal Science by Leland Shapiro marries the art and science of raising livestock in a healthy, humane and profitable manner by presenting an applied approach to animal reproduction, genetics, nutrition, animal health and general management.

Written for students of general animal science, pre-veterinary, veterinary technology and equine science programs, Shapiro provides the following benefits to his users:

  • Balanced coverage of animal science and animal husbandry — discusses the "art" of raising specific species while covering all of the necessary science. Shapiro addresses animal rights and animal well-being issues, bringing awareness of the ethics of agriculture to students.
  • Broad coverage of species — includes information on dairy cattle, goats, beef cattle, sheep, swine, poultry, horses and rabbits, as well as unusual species, such as the llama and the ostrich, that have recently gained popularity within agricultural sectors.
  • Visual coverage — includes breed photos, veterinary photos and working college farm laboratory photos. This book's art program enhances the learning experience of students with no prior farm experience, as well as those with farm backgrounds.

A free CD ROM with each new copy of this edition features a self-test for every chapter, in a format that is engaging and fun and designed to ensure retention of the course material.

Book News Annotation:

This textbook concentrates mainly on the science involved in the raising of production animals, rather than the art of animal husbandry, which must involve thousands of hours of working directly with livestock for mastery. Fourteen chapters cover introductory animal reproduction, genetics, nutrition, breeds, animal health, and general management of various common livestock species. Coverage includes traditional large industries such as dairy cow, goat, beef, sheep, swine, poultry, and equine, and other less common species such as rabbit, camel, and ostrich. The included CD-ROM features study guide software with chapter summaries, vocabulary practice, and self- tests. Shapiro teaches preveterinary science at Los Angeles Pierce College and was a dairy farmer for nearly 20 years.

The Book covers animal reproduction, genetics, nutrition, breeds, health and general management of the various livestock. Including some additional species that have caught the interest of agriculture. For readers in the agriculture or dairy industry that need information on the modern day science of raising livestock.
