About The Books

Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) which regulates UG Education (Agriculture, Horticulture, Fisheries etc) has mandated a course on Livestock Production and Management which is essential to understand the livestock which are part and parcel of Agriculture. With organic farming gaining momentum, knowledge of basic Animal Production is more relevant then ever before. Students are teachers depend on many publications, Indian and Foreign, during the course of study/teaching. Therefore, a book with contents conforming to the ICAR Syllabus has been long awaited. This publication has been prepared keeping the ICAR Syllabus as the framework. The Chapters included are Domestication of Livestock, Breeds, Hosing, Feeding and Management, Milk production and Milking, Breeding, Control of diseases, Record keeping and Economics of milk production. A separate chapter on Poultry Farming is also included because rearing poultry is conspicuously different from that of other animals. Each of the Chapters has "Study questions" with both objective and subjective questions which is a unique feature of this publication. Answers are provided only for objective questions. However, the questions listed are not exhaustive and the teacher can develop many more contained only by imaginations. It is hoped that this publication will be received well by all those related to the subject "Livestock Producation and Management", in general and students of State Agricultural Universities, in Particular.
