Editorial Reviews

Review

"Insufficient scientific information on livestock handling and transport not only cause significant social and moral conflicts, but also great economic losses whereas the scientifically based knowledge presented in this book may contribute to its decrease. Hopefully this reviewed book will be read, studied and used to fulladvantage."

"Anyone involved in livestock production can consider owning a copy of this book as an investment."

By C. Miller on December 4, 2010
Livestock Handling and Transport is one of the best researched and well illustrated books I have found on livestock handling and animal behavior. The contributing authors are all experts in their field and are from all parts of the world -- a great perspective! They all come together to compile a must-read for producers, livestock handlers, animal behaviorists, etc. I highly recommend this book. It should be required reading in all ag classrooms.

This is a must reed book for anyone handling livestock. We raise pigs on pasture which is a little different than Grandin covers, more like her cattle handling. Highly recommended book. I bought mine used and by chance it happens to be a signed copy. Kind of cool.
