Sheep Flock Health

A Planned Approach
Author: Neil Sargison
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
ISBN: 1444302604
Category: Medical
Page: 480
View: 5698
Sheep Flock Health: a planned approach is a practical guide to the diagnosis and management of production limiting diseases in sheep. The problem-based approach helps both farmers and veterinary practitioners identify health problems. The focus is on good management practices to prevent disease in the first place and to optimise production. Focuses on the achievement and maintenance of optimal productivity, rather than on a catalogue of individual diseases of sheep. Written by an expert with a strong international reputation. Suitable not only for veterinarians and veterinary students, but also progressive sheep farmers.

An understanding of the processes that change the shape and composition of farm animals is fundamental to all aspects of production. The book provides a comprehensive picture of how animals grow, change in shape and in composition, and of the factors which affect growth processes and dictate the extent and direction of changes within the animal. It is an updated edition of a popular undergraduate student textbook. The authors have retained the themes of the first edition but have updated and added new chapters.

Sheep Farming for Meat and Wool contains practical, up-to-date information on sheep production and management for producers throughout temperate Australia. It is based on research and extension projects conducted over many years by the Department of Primary Industries and its predecessors and the University of Melbourne. The book covers business management, pasture growth and management, nutrition and feed management, drought management, reproductive management, disease management, genetic improvement, animal welfare and working dog health. It also gives seasonal reminders for a spring lambing wool-producing flock, for autumn lambing Merino ewes joined to Border Leicester rams, and for winter lambing crossbred ewes joined to terminal sires. It will guide new and established farmers, students of agriculture and service providers with detailed information on the why and how of sheep production, and will assist farmer groups to initiate activities aimed at increasing their efficiency in specific areas of sheep production.
