Review of

Readership:
Aimed at livestock farming professionals, smallholders, students and researchers in Animal Science, Meat Technology, Veterinary Science, and Applied Ethology (animal behaviour) and people involved in welfare legislation or the farm animal transportation industry.

Publisher's summary:
Handling and transport present some of the most severe stresses that farmed animals are likely to experience. There is growing interest in this subject, for reasons that are economic and related to animal welfare. For this second edition, the original 19 review chapters have been updated and revised to include the latest research, and a new chapter covering animal physiology is included. All aspects are covered, including handling for veterinary and husbandry procedures, restrainst methods, transport systems and design of facilities on farm and at slaughter plants.

Temple Grandin and contributors are world authorities on animal welfare. Updated and revised to include the latest research, and includes a completely new chapter covering animal stress physiology
