The idea that current methods of food production are not sustainable in the long-term is a controversial topic. This book provides information that will advance a form of livestock production that meets the long- and short-term goals of human food production, minimizing degradation of natural resources. Important concerns regarding food safety, particularly antibiotic and chemical residues in meat, milk and other livestock foods, have stimulated renewed interest in alternative methods of promoting livestock health.

Alternative Health Practices for Livestock is the first compilation of its kind for veterinarians, agriculture extension educators and livestock producers. It provides a well-referenced overview of some of the alternative livestock practices currently being examined.

Key Features:

  • A much needed information source on alternative health for large animals
  • Contributions from veterinarians, farmers, extension educators and university professors
  • Discusses the necessity for more validated scientific assessments of alternative and herbal therapies in livestock production
  • Includes chapters on ways to promote alternative methods of health care for livestock, including steps to obtain research funding.
