Reproductive Technologies in Farm Animals 2nd Edition
ByYear August 3, 2017, File Type: PDF
Building on the successful structure of the first edition, the second edition of Reproductive Technologies in Farm Animals has been revised to provide up-to-date accounts of the key techniques employed in manipulating reproduction in farm animals, including beef and dairy cattle, pigs, sheep, goats, buffaloes, camelids, horses, and poultry.
A classic introductory text to the subject, the book is based on a comprehensive review of the current literature. It:
* Outlines different agricultural systems and explores the ethical implications of modern farming methods
* Details the many new developments, including the commercial application of sexed semen and large-scale application of in vitro-produced cattle embryos
* Provides a valuable synopsis of current and future reproductive technologies, such as cloning and the production of transgenic animals.
This text remains key reading for students in animal science, agriculture, veterinary medicine, and biology and veterinary practitioners and farmers who wish to remain up to date regarding developments in techniques that may be useful in their daily practice.
It should be stressed that the text covers areas in which there is considerable research activity and for many readers the different chapters may serve as a possible starting point for seeking information on their particular interests. More: Reproduction in Farm Animals PDF Download
The hope is that the book may be of interest not only to students of animal science and veterinary medicine, but also to those concerned with the practical aspects of assisted reproduction, whether in an advisory capacity or in applying techniques on the farm itself.
The book Reproductive Technologies in Farm Animals 2nd Edition does not concern itself with infectious reproductive disorders but certain material may interest veterinary practitioners in their work with farm animals. For those undergraduates or graduates in animal science and veterinary medicine contemplating research in reproductive physiology, the work may provide some insight into the nature and scope of current assisted reproductive technology and the many problems that await solutions.
