Acker, Duane, Cunningham, Merle D.


Animal Science and Industry, Sixth Edition, is written for use in an introductory course covering the principles of animal science. Helping to make the reader's initial study of animal science both exciting and rewarding, this well-rounded text is designed for maximum teaching flexibility and covers the animal industry in its totality. It describes the important principles of animal science in each of the major disciplines: nutrition, environment, health, behavior, reproduction, lactation, genetics/breeding, products, and marketing. These principles are then applied in chapters that discuss sound production and management practices for beef cows and calves, dairy, horses and ponies, poultry, sheep, swine, and feeder-feedlot and fish enterprises. Whether or not the reader is an animal science major in an undergraduate program, and whether from a farm or non-farm background, this book provides all of the necessary information for a complete understanding of animal agriculture and its critical role in our society and economy. Building on its success in prior editions as a superb teaching tool, this new Sixth Edition has been updated to include current trends and the latest statistics, as well as new and expanded material on horses and ponies, animal welfare, biotechnology, and animal waste management. Due to the rapid growth of aquaculture in the United States, a new chapter has been added on this important topic. A free CD-ROM with each copy of this edition features a self-test for every chapter, in a format that is engaging and fun, designed to ensure retention of the material learned.Acker, Duane is the author of 'Animal Science and Industry' with ISBN 9780130826534 and ISBN 0130826537.
