Description - Alternative Health Practices for Livestock by Thomas Morris
"Growing food in a manner that does not pollute plant Earth, is nutritious, tasty, plentiful and minimizes the potential long-term degradation of natural resources, including antibiotics, should be the goal of all societies. Current methods of food production do not meet all of these goals. This book is our small effort to provide information about methods of livestock production that better meet these goals." Recent concerns regarding food safety, particularly antibiotic and chemical residues in meat and milk, have stimulated interest in alternative methods of promoting livestock health. This innovative, edited volume is a compilation of the latest research, treatment modalities, and scientific advancements in this field.
