Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For 17 years readers have turned to Storey Books for advice on raising animals. Our Modern Way series of six books has sold more than 1,000,000 copies. In an effort to provide readers with the best how-to animal books on the market we are completely updating all six Modern Way titles and reintroducing them as part of our Guide to Raising series.

Written by experts, these guides give novice and experienced livestock farmers all they need to know to successfully keep and profit from animals. Each book includes information on selection, housing, space requirements, breeding and birthing techniques, feeding, behavior, and health concerns and remedies for illness. The books also address the business of raising animals — processing meat, milk, eggs, and more. The authors were chosen not only for their expertise but also for their ability to explain the ins and outs of animal husbandry in an inviting and authoritative manner.

Whether readers are ready to start an entire herd or flock or are considering purchasing their first animal, Storey's Guide to Raising series offers vital information; each book is an indispensable reference.

Synopsis:

The Most Comprehensive Guide to Raising Turkeys

Storey's Guide to Raising Turkeys is an invaluable resource for everyone who raises turkeys. It contains the most current information available on:

Selecting the right turkey

Breeding and management

Processing

Feeding and housing

Flock health

"I highly recommend this book to farmers and students because the information is practical and useful, and the text is easy to read." - Dr. Roger Murray, Animal Pathologist, University of Vermont
