Description

Award-winning author Temple Grandin is famous for her groundbreaking approach to decoding animal behaviour. Now she extends her expert guidance to small-scale farming operations. Grandin's fascinating explanations of how herd animals think -- describing their senses, fears, instincts, and memories -- and how to analyze their behaviour, will help you handle your livestock more safely and effectively. You'll learn to become a skilled observer of animal movement and behaviour, and detailed illustrations will help you setup simple and efficient facilities for managing a small herd of 3 to 25 cattle or pigs, or 5 to 100 goats or sheep.
