Book Description

"The Well-Being of Farm Animals: Challenges and Solutions" is the first title in Blackwell Publishing Professional's groundbreaking series "Issues in Animal Bioethics". This important book examines the ethical and economic importance of production animal well-being and pain management - topics of increasing concern to consumers. "The Well-Being of Farm Animals: Challenges and Solutions" offers veterinarians, veterinary and agriculture students, animal scientists, and food animal producers both practical methods to enhance farm animal well-being, and greater understanding of the theoretical underpinnings of those methods.With a variety of perspectives from respected experts and specialists, this book conveys new research findings and promotes valuable discourse on critical issues. Most importantly, editors Benson and Rollin provide feasible instruction to put theory into practice. The theories and applications presented in this book are likely to be legislated in the future.
