Storey’s Illustrated Breed Guide to Sheep, Goats, Cattle and Pigs, 163 Breeds from Common to Rare, is dedicated to improving the day-to-day operations and profitability of your farm through the raising of healthier, more contented livestock. Collaborating with Temple Grandin, North America’s most influential advocate of humane livestock treatment, Carol Ekarius talks about the benefits to de-stressing your operation. Less stress equates to safer handling, less injuries to animals or handlers, reduced veterinary bills, higher yields of marketable meat and when put into practical use is a wonderful marketing tool to tout your humane efforts when raising meat, something that consumers are becoming increasingly aware of. To make your transition to more humane handling easier, complete construction plans are included for facilities of every size, designed to meet a wide range of needs. “ . . . belongs in the reference case of every serious livestock production professional.” -Joe Roybal, Editor, BEEF Magazine
