Award-winning author Temple Grandin is famous for her groundbreaking approach to decoding animal behavior. Now she extends her expert guidance to small-scale farming operations. Grandin’s fascinating explanations of how to analyze herd animals’ behavior and how to understand how they think — (describing their senses, fears, instincts, and memories) — will help you handle your livestock more safely and effectively.
You’ll learn to become a skilled observer of animal movement and behavior. Detailed illustrations will help you set up simple and efficient facilities for managing a small herd of 3 to 25 cattle or pigs or 5 to 100 goats or sheep.
There wasn’t really a whole lot of information that I didn’t already know. I think this book is really for people new to having farm animals.
Just what l needed to know how to relate to my farm animals for a mutually rewarding experience.
Wonderful book that explains the basics of low stress animal management. Stress free animals and handlers are healthier and more productive.
More about slaughter than I was expecting
