"Poultry" details the characteristics and requirements of this livestock group and how to raise and produce poultry in a variety of tropical zones and farming systems. Breeds and breeding, diseases and parasites, slaughtering, processing and marketing are all included in an easy-to-read text. The revised edition points up computer-assisted methods of management of poultry production. The book emphasises the importance of hygienic production of poultry products, evidenced by the increase in bacterial infection traced to contaminated eggs and meat.
