Promotional Information

"The publication of this book comes at an extremely opportune time when the world is having to rethink food production and diets in the face of the climate change and mass land degradation. Organic livestock farming has to face these issues as well and will have some answers to problems the intensive animal production has created and does not appear to be able to resolve. Organic livestock production has come a long way since any major, comprehensive summary of it was last published so this book is hugely welcome. The cast of editors and authors, all leaders in their field, makes the book a reliable reference work for years to come." Dr Malla Hovi, Veterinary Epidemiologist, Consultant, Preventable Surprises
