Summary, etc.:
Have you ever celebrated Thanksgiving with a turkey from a local farm, instead of a packaged, frozen supermarket bird? Ever cracked a farm-fresh egg into the skillet next to a store-bought one? The difference in quality can't be overstated. Small-scale livestock farming not only brings better, safer, and more delicious food to your table, but it can do so economically.Long the primary reference for anyone who keeps animals as a sustainable food source, this latest edition comes with a beautiful new design and includes up-to-date information on breeding, feeding, disease prevention, housing, and management. Complete with clarifying diagrams, full color photography, and a catalog of supplemental reading, Backyard Livestock continues to be the best resource for those who wish to sustainably and ethically raise their own farm-fresh food. --Publisher
